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.
