GARY BRYDEN MEMORIAL SALVER - Rowallan Castle through to semi finals

Rowallan Castle claimed the final place in the semi finals of the scratch club team knockout competition for The Gary Bryden memorial salver recently with a notable 2 - 1 win over Prestwick St Cuthbert.

Glen Wilson took an early lead over Graeme Gimson but the St Cuthbert player, who has had an outstanding record in scratch matchplay ties in Ayrshire this season, fought back to win by 2&1.

In the other singles tie, Robbie Macinnes had a crushing 7&5 win over Calum Nairn to level the match, leaving the overall result resting with the foursomes tie involving John Rushbury & Neil Black against Adam Sweeney and Steven Gillies.

In increasingly wet and dull conditions, the two teams gathered to follow the conclusion of the foursomes tie.

Despite being a couple of holes behind late in the game, the Rowallan Castle pair fought back and a 25 foot putt at the final green by John Rushbury was enough to give the home side a single hole victory.

In the semi finals the Rowallan Castle team visit Loudoun, whilst Ardeer will play host to Kilmarnock Barassie in the other semi final tie.
