North-east District name players for

Sunday get-together at Cruden Bay

The North-east District of the Scottish Golf Union has arranged a players' get-together on Sunday at Cruden Bay. Committee member Mike Pocock explained the thinking behind the move:
"We are having a players' get-together on Sunday at Cruden Bay (at the players' request I might add) with a dual purpose - really to give us a chance to look at new names who have come to the fore and also to get the guys playing foursomes golf.
"With the new format in next year's Scottish area team championship it will be crucial to get off to a fast start in the only foursome. It’s also very important that you select the right two players for this without weakening the singles' line-up (captain's dilemma).
"We will have two more of these Sunday sessions, both early in 2010. We also intend to try and arrange a couple of inter-district eight or 10-man team matches to fill the void of the two lost area matches."
Scottish men's and boys' champion David Law (Hazlehead) is not available as he will not be home in time from playing in two tournaments in Argentina. The following players have been invited to the first of three sessions over the winter break:
Bryan Innes (Murcar Links), Anthony Bews (Murcar Links), Adrian Styles (Murcar Links), Mark Halliday (Royal Aberdeen), Philip McLean (Peterhead), Kris Nicol (Fraserburgh), Laurie Phillips (Cruden Bay), Adam Dunton (McDonald Ellon), Kevin Duncan (McDonald Ellon), Scott Larkin (Banchory), Martin Lawrence (Newmachar), Clark Brechin (Portlethen).
