In the fourth match Helen Faulds & Olive McKay were well beaten by Andrew McNamara & Finlay Watson with Finlay having a particularly good day on the greens.
That result left the teams tied at two matches each with the result now hinging on the ” officials ” match involving Lady Captain Elaine McEwen and Past Captain Maggie Rutherford against Club Captain Alistair Beattie and Team Manager Hugh MacIntyre. In a close fought encounter , played in excellent spirit , the Gentlemen edged the Ladies 3 & 2 to produce an overall win for the Gents team.
