All eight of their players contributed to the victory with Aberfeldy’s Isla Moncrieff claiming a one hundred percent record with four points from her four starts. Dunfermline’s Jennifer Saxton accumulated four points in the five matches she played in while Eilidh Watson from the St Regulus club amassed the same total from her six starts. Blairgowrie’s Megan Ashley and Muckhart’s Laura Walker both claimed three and a half points out of five while there was also an effective cameo performance from captain Jillian Milne who won both the matches she played in on the second day. Whitemuir’s Laura Campbell contributed one and a half points out of four to the team’s cause.
“It has been absolutely brilliant,” said winning captain Milne, from Blairgowrie. “The team spirit has been fantastic and I couldn’t be happier for them all. They deserved everything they got. Today the birdie putts were dropping like confetti.
“It’s has been a real team effort with everyone contributing points. We’ve always had good players but in the past lacked a bit of strength in depth. That’s certainly not the case now so hopefully it won’t be another 68 years before we win again. I’m sure it won’t be.
“It has been a fantastic few days for all the teams,” she added. “All the games were played in great spirit. I think that after what we’ve been through the last year and a half we’re all grateful to be back playing some competitive golf again. We’ve all been determined to have some fun.”
