No wonder Harburn’s Fiona Smith and Aileen Kennedy look pleased to have the Gibson Trophy in their hands.

They’d come close without success on numerous occasions and also watched some of their clubmates emerge triumphant in the Braids event.

But this time around Smith and Kennedy were not to be denied as the pair won the rescheduled staging of the cancelled 2014 event.

They were worthy winners, too, after following up a 2&1 semi-final success over clubmates Linda Boyle and Dorothy Wilson with a 5&3 victory over Baberton duo and leading qualifiers Adrienne Turner and Laura Reekie in the final.

The second flight, for the former Herald & Post Trophy, was won by Mortonhall’s Janet Begrie and Catherine Stewart after a last-green win over Gullane Ladies duo Mary Lou Watkins and Hazel Saunders.
