Broomieknowe Ladies win the Edinburgh Interclub Tournament
Last week at Dalmahoy, the Broomie Ladies team brought the silverware back to the club after several recent defeats in finals of this competition. It was a magnificent effort by all four of our ladies who, with an average age of 21 must be one of the youngest teams ever.
Drawn in the first round against the home team, a very convincing 11&9 victory was secured. Ratho Park were our opponents in the second round and, again, the team were pretty invincible, winning by 8&6. For the semi-final against Mortonhall on Saturday morning, a greater challenge was anticipated but again, the girls triumphed with a score of 5&4. We all looked forward to the afternoon final against Baberton who had been the nemesis of Broomieknowe in the past and the match did not disappoint. The game was extremely tight with Kate and Hannah D. finishing 6 up and Hannah S. and Samantha starting the 17th 4 down. The 17th was halved, giving us a 2&1 victory and the lady captain could finally take a breath! Great credit must go to all of the ladies who competed so well throughout and special mention to Samantha who was making her tournament debut. Many thanks to the caddies and to the members who came out to offer support and encouragement throughout. Broomieknowe members should be very proud of this achievement.
