Lothians beat Northumberland at Goswick

It is always difficult to beat Northumberland at home but the Lothians team did just that in a very close match at Goswick last weekend. In the morning foursomes we got off to a good start with 3 games up and 3 games All Square after 7 holes but Northumberland finished strongly for the score to be 3 - 3 at lunchtime.

It was close again in the afternoon with us having a narrow lead after the first 7 games but it took two hard fought halved matches by Scott McCandless and Ross Mallon and wins by tail gunners Allyn Dick (4/3) and Craig Davidson (1 hole) to secure the 10 - 8 victory.

Champion Stuart Blair lead by example all day and along with Benn McLeod, Craig Davidson and Jake Edgcombe won both their matches. A great start by young Jake in his first men's match. The winter performance programme over the last few years has created a great team spirit which is now bearing fruit in a string of great results.

Team: L to R - Back Row: Barrie Lewis (West Lothian), Craig Davidson (Longniddry), Scott McCandless (Bathgate), Jamie Duguid (Dunbar), Marc Reid (Craigielaw), Kenny Glen (Craigielaw) Front Row - Benn McLeod (Musselburgh),Allyn Dick (Kingsfield), Stuart Blair (Royal Musselburgh), Jake Edgcombe (Baberton), Ross Mallon (Bathgate) and Ross Colquhoun (Kingsfield)

The Executive match trophy also returned to Edinburgh after a 4 - 2 victory at Magdalene Fields on the Saturday afternoon. Full results can be seen on the Lothians Matches heading on the Competitions/Men's drop down menu on this website. There is also an increasing amount of information available on the Lothians Instagram and Twitter (X) sites which now have an impressive number of followers.
