Kirsten Brown (St. Andrews University )  held off reigning R and A Scholar Champion Lorna McClymont (SRUC) to win the 14th Autumn Trophy for students at Alyth Golf Club

Kirsten Brown started the day with a two-stroke lead over Lorna McClymont and used steady, bogey-free golf to extend that lead to three at the turn. Birdies at 10 and 12 allowed McClymont to get back within two shots and a grandstand finish looked set.
Unfortunately for Lorna, bogeys followed on 13 and 14 which allowed Brown the luxury of two dropped shots in the final four holes on the way to victory by those two strokes. 
A one under total of 212 for the tournament showed the consistently high level of golf she had produced over all three days and she was fully deserving of a first BUCS/SSS Tour victory.

In third place, St Andrews' Megan Ashley was in a contest with herself – three early bogeys meaning she was too many back to fully challenge for the lead but also confident of staying ahead of those behind. Birdies at 10 and 12, before a double at 14 and bogey at 16, left Ashley to finish +7 for the tournament, six back from McClymont but five ahead of the chasing pack.
Brown’s quality golf was enough for St. Andrew’s second team to upset their first team, Cassie Kneen and Rachel Maswi joining with Kirsten in taking the team competition by two strokes.
