On Sunday junior champion Ross Anderson played in the final stages of the Spence Trophy at Peterculter - a competition for all the north east junior champions. In the morning semi final Ross overcame Portlethen’s Robbie Murdoch by the score of 2 & 1. In the afternoon’s final Ross was up against Andrew Carrell from the home club. The match was close all the way until Ross found himself 2 down after 15 holes. He then managed to birdie and win the 16th and 17th holes and half the 18th hole to finish all square. At the first extra hole they both found the green in three. Andrew holed his 20 foot putt and Ross agonisingly shaved the hole with his 10 foot putt. However this was an excellent effort from Ross who previously won this trophy two years ago. Ross has now taken up an assistant professional post at Finchley Golf Club in North London - everyone from the club wishes him every success in his new venture.
A team of juniors went to Cardrona Golf Club to play in the Home Nations interclub championship Scotland National Final. Despite the miserable conditions and it being a very long course the boys enjoyed themselves. Scores on the day - Kevin Riddell - 85, Josh Halliday - 85, Kiefer Brown - 93, Connor Douglas - 91, Grant Robb - 91, Ross McAllan - 93.
