Midland Veterans Ladies Golf Association

Played at Hexham Golf Club against a background of beautiful rolling landscape and on semi green fairways, day one against the South produced three dramatic matches during the day to finish the foursomes all square. With a comfortable win by Julie Brown and newcomer Tracey Williamson in the morning and another win from Julie in the afternoon, we lost 3½ to 5½ at the end of the day.

Day 2 was another beautiful day, the morning gave us one win against the North in the foursomes (Sue Spencer and Debbie Warren). The afternoon produced a number of thrilling matches with all six matches up halfway through. The North battled back and the final result was a loss 3½ to 5½, with Mary Maclaren and Tracey Williamson wining and a half from Sue Spencer.

On day 3, we set our goals high and won 2 points in the foursomes from Catrin Russell and Carol Wild and Julie and Tracey. The afternoon produced a number of exciting matches with Tracey winning 6/4 and also a win from Sue Spencer but in the end Scotland prevailed winning 5 - 4 overall.
Congratulations to all the team who played so well and produced some wonderful golf - over the three days there were many matches that finished on the 18th - but were pipped at the end.Tracey Williamson and Catrin Russell were awarded team colours.

Overall the South won the Miller Stirling Salver and the North the Tony Moffat Quaich. Full results can be seen under the Jamboree Tab.
