IRISH SENIOR LADIES WIN MARY McKENNA TROPHY

Today at Royal Belfast G.C. the Irish Senior Ladies' Team emphatically regained  the Mary Mckenna Trophy from the Scottish Veteran Ladies' Golf Association Team winning the annual match by 10 points to 2 points.

The Scots had a mountain to climb after losing yesterday's Four ball matches 3.5 points to 0.5 point with Midland Vets' Champion,Fiona de Vries,along with her West Vets partner,Lesley Lloyd,being the pair to earn the halved match. In today's singles - the order of which is drawn out of a hat rather than placed by the Team captains - the Scots fought hard but found themselves losing out by 6.5 points to 1.5 points.The sole Scottish winner was Midland Vets' former Champion,Lorna McKinlay,who scored an excellent win over the experienced and very powerful Laura Webb.

Bad luck to the Team in losing the Match but very well done to our Midland Vets ladies for playing some great golf and bringing home the points.
