Barnstaple Trophy

The weather on Saturday 16th May mirrored the emotions inside the Clubhouse during the  inaugural competition for the Trophy in celebration of the life of Past President Bert Barnstaple.

Rain for the tears shed in memory of a well loved member of our club and sunshine for the warmth of the love and obvious pride Bert’s family displayed throughout the day.

Seldom have so many members stayed to watch the Final and Prize Giving for a Saturday Club competition, reflecting the respect which we have within the club for our true

 “Scottish Champion”.

Another young rising Star AT Dalzell

Congratulations to Julie brand on reaching the district finals (20/6/15) where she narrowly missed out on a place at northfield. Julie has had an excellent season so far  - including an international trial - and we trust she will continue to  enjoy success at our club and beyond in the coming years.
