Match 4 - Glenbervie (Home) Re-sheduled due to adverse weather.

Fergus Young is your Captain for this Home match against Glenbervie which was cancelled back in May due to heavy rain (and it hasn’t stopped since!).  If you are unable to play, please contact Fergus and the Convenor, asap with your substitute and his handicap.

Meet at the clubhouse at 11:45 am for refreshments and a Sandwich lunch before a 1:00 pm tee-off.  Delicious meal after the game !

This annual match is in its 5th year and is played for the “Blairbervie Trophy” which regretfully in the away match last year we lost 7 - 1,  so it would be nice to win this trophy for the first time.

Match 18 - Downfield (Home) RESULT

An excellent 4.5-3.5 win by Blairgowrie Seniors against Downfield, at home on Thursday 23rd July, this was encouraging after our 6-2 defeat away back in April.
Both courses were in excellent condition, a bit lush after all our Summer rain, this coupled with a stiff, gusty breeze made for a real challenge.  The matches were all played in the best of spirits and it was a pleasure to Host Downfield again. 

Well done Fraser Ritchie for organizing everything so well, and to his dedicated team of athletes for delivering such a good result.

The post match meal provided by Jane & Paul was excellent as usual - Many thanks, and much appreciated by all.

Thanks to Colin Blues for the Captain's Photo

Match 17 - Gullane (Home) RESULT

David Douglas and his team of finely tuned athletes managed to secure a 6.5 - 1.5 win for the Blairgowrie Seniors at home in Blairgowrie on Thursday 16th July.  Both courses were in excellent condition and amazingly the weather held up well, although it was a bit breezy and gusty.   As Blairgowrie also won the first leg match away 5.5-2.5 back in June, we also won the Trophy for 2015, which is quite an achievement. The aggregate score was 12-4.

An excellent meal was enjoyed after the match thanks to Jane & Paul.  So, well done to David and his team and to Gullane who clearly enjoyed their day and returned to East Lothian on their bus after a few refreshments.

Note from Ian McPherson:  The match v Gullane is played for the ALEC MASON PLAQUE and has been played since  1963 although no records were held until 1974 and since then Gullane have won 30 we have won 9 ( 6 in the last 10 years) and 3 matches were drawn.

Thanks also to Lee Bushby for the photo of the two Captains.

Match 16 - Edzell v Blairgowrie (Away) RESULT

While Allan McKay and his team enjoyed good weather and excellent hospitality up in the Angus glens, Edzell just got the better of the Blairgowrie Seniors, again - There must be something in the water?   Anyway, The Centenary Trophy remains with Edzell, once again.  Unfortunately, our aggregate score for 2015 is Blairgowrie 8.5 - 11.5 Edzell.

Many thanks to Allan McKay for all his efforts, and to the team for trying so hard (enjoying themselves) - Maybe next year?

Win - 3
Half - 1
Lost - 11
