Wrap: Baberton Ladies take title | Forrest bags a Jag
Baberton are the new holders of the Edinburgh Ladies Inter Club trophy after triumphing at Craigmillar Park.
Represented by Karen Marshall, Fiona Thorburn, Fiona de Vries and Wendy Nicholson, the Juniper Green club beat 2016 winners Broomieknowe 9&7 in the final.
The experienced duo of De Vries and Marshall finished three up on the youthful pairing of Hannah Darling and Kate McIntosh after being tight most of the way.
And, at the back, Nicholson and Thorburn combined to get the better of Sandra Hennessy and Katherine Anderson.
• Lothians star Grant Forrest has struck up a new partnership with Pentland Jaguar.
As part of the deal, the North Berwick-based player will be driving a new Jaguar E-pace, which he picked up at the firm’s showroom at Fort Kinnaird.
“I am delighted to be representing them as I drive around when I’m at home,” said the Challenge Tour player.
Grant Elliott, Sales Manager at Pentland Jaguar Edinburgh, added: “We are sure this is the start of a great partnership.”
• Captain Keith Reilly reckons Lothians gave a better account of themselves than the scoreline suggests in an annual friendly against Northumberland.
“We seemed to lose a lot of holes towards the end of most games,” said the Silverknowes stalwart of a 13.5-4.5 defeat at City of Newcastle.
On his debut, Aaron Hall holing his second shot at the first for an eagle in the foursomes.
Former Lothians champion Sean Marc won both his games while Stuart Blair and Simon Lockhart were unbeaten.
