Juniors get a draw at Caldwell

A refreshing and lovely day witnessed the juniors play a fantastic game that ended in an overall draw. The juniors and adults were made very welcomed by both Vice Captain Brian and Junior Convenor Graham. A fantastic game went all the way, with the handicapped players earning all the points! This is a new format which dictates the first 3 juniors play off bare feet with the remaining 3 utilising their official handicaps. After our first 3 players lost their matches it was not looking good, however the youngsters battled on with two of our handicap players playing for the first time(Evan/Josh) in Newton Shield colours.  Young Evan came back from 1 down with 2 to play to take it on the 18th, closely followed by young Josh who fought back to take it on the 17th!!

Overall a brilliant day made all the better with a junior section within Caldwell that made us feel very welcomed and suitably at home.
