Craigielaw's Junior Team has become Scottish Junior Team Champions for the fourth time in six years at a wet and windy Cardrona.
Despite missing two of their star players, Grant Forrest and Gabrielle Macdonald, the team of Ollie Duffy (captain), Willem Kerr, Jack Dow, Ewen Donaldson, Lewis Ross and Marcus Cullen, all performed well, narrowly, beating Deeside Golf Club in the 15-team Scottish final.
The Craigielaw junior team will now represent Scotland in the British finals which take place in Spain early in the new year. It should be familiar ground to them, having won the British title on their last visit to the finals in 2009.
Team Manager Gordon Smith said "I take my hat of to our junior team members. I actually think we were a bit fortunate to be at the Scottish final, having just qualified by beating Gullane at home in the last match of the East Lothian Junior Golf League.
"We were missing a couple of our stars at Cardrona but the young players who came in performed really well. I think we will have at least two players at the British finals who were members of the victorious 2009 squad, so our squad in Spain should have a great mix of competitive experience and young talent."
