WEST OF SCOTLAND LEAGUES - Ayrshire A Team defeat Glasgow

On Saturday (16th) the Ayrshire A team bounced back from last week's defeat at Dumbarton to record a good home win over Glasgow at West Kilbride.

Defeat in the opening match for Barry Crawford of the host club was offset by David Addison's notable win over Peter Jamieson of Cathkin Braes.

In the third tie, Kilmarnock Barassie's boys internationalist, Steven McEwan was far from disgraced in his 4 & 3 defeat, his opponent Keith McNair being 5 under par when the match concluded.

The middle order matches proved decisive for Ayrshire, the St. Cuthbert duo of David Glass and Steven Wallace both recording 4 & 3 wins and Robert McKnight having a notable 2 & 1 win against Glasgow Open winner Graeme Cox of Pollock.

Despite Kevin Ferguson (St. Cuthbert) suffering a narrow defeat, the last three Ayrshire players, Steven Spence, Tommy Loy and Ian Brown took 2.5 points from 3 to complete a good team performance.
