Grant Forrest of Craigielaw, a former EL Junior, played in the record points winning GB&I Team in the Walker Cup match vs. the USA at Lytham St Annes. Grant won his singles match on day 2. Grant now plays, as an Amateur, in the ET Q School Stage 1 event at Northampton.

Joanne is also going to Troon to represent Scottish Schools v English Schools. Congratulations to all.

Our thanks are due to John Lunn and staff at The Glen for hosting our final League Match Day on Sunday the 16th August, on their superb course. The two title contenders were leaders Gullane and challengers Longniddry, who played very well to beat Tantallon* 3-0 but Gullane were well in control of 2 of their 3 matches, and they eventually defeated North Berwick by 2.5 matches to 0.5. The result means that Gullane retain the League Championship. The League Table has been updated. The full results are below. *Tantallon played without Scott Young who was in the final of the Esmond Trophy at North Berwick, which he won by defeating the legend George Cochrane!
