Cardross boys win McIntyre League

for second time in three years

For the second time in three years the Cardross Golf Club juniors (pictured below) have won the McIntyre League, played for by golf clubs in the area. With only two boys from the winning team two years ago playing in this year's team, the whole squad provided evidence of the ability and strength in depth the village side has where the junior section forms an important section of the club.
Gavin Foubister and Ian Stewart were the two juniors to feature in both league wins and their experience was crucial to guide the younger players, such as Cameron Black who was only 10 years old when the first game was played, to this year's league trimuph.
First up was a home game against Helensburgh and a 5 1/2- 1/2 victory gave the boys confidence that good times were ahead. This was followed by another home win, this time by 4 1/2- 1 1/2 against Clydebank and District.
Two away games then followed against Overton and Vale of Leven where two wins, dropping only one halved match, set up another away game against Dumbarton. This game was tighter and in the end the Cardross juniors came away with a 4-2 victory.
The final game was at home to Clober and a 5 1/2-1/2 win, which saw them go through the league with an unbeaten record, was the icing on the cake.
The boys were photographed after the league junior presentation day for all the league teams which by coincidence was held at Cardross this year. In the medal round played for by all of the teams Gavin Foubister carded the lowest scratch with a 74 to edge out Liam Chambers.
