AYRSHIRE GOLF ASSOCIATION - defeat in pre season match at Ravenspark

After defeat at Loudoun the previous week by 4 - 1, the County team travelled to Ravenspark on Sunday, looking for a better resuult, but came up against a strong home side who ran out winners by 3 - 2.

In the first tie, a couple of Ayrshire veterans, Kevin Middlemiss and George Robertson from the host side saw off the challenge of Ian Menzies and Nicky Sinclair whilst in the second tie, county players John Cairney and Darren Mallinson of the hosts beat Craig Hamilton and county debutant Chris Bone, to give the home side a 2-0 lead.

The third tie also went the way of the home side, giving them an unbeatable lead, although pride was somewhat restored in the remaining ties, which were both won by the county side.
