Juniors welcome Erskine for Newton Shield game

Elderslie welcomed Erskine on mon night. With Erskine’s first 3 players having low handicaps (2 – 8) we knew it would be a tall order to take anything from the game.  Regardless Lewis, Ben and Heather lead the way and fought bravely to take all 3 players to the 16 and 17th hole. Behind them Caolan, Jack and Evan utilised their handicaps to try and restore some Elderslie pride. Jack played well but was slowly nudged out on the 16th, Caolan held onto the 18th where he gained a half and young Evan continued his winning streak with a brilliant victory on the 16th. Not forgetting the reserve match where Rhys took on Nieve, this resulted in a tight match which was halfed on the last hole. A great game played in a friendly manner; all the kids (and the adults) enjoyed the great food afterwards and the interesting speeches.  Not a win but a superb learning curve, upwards and onwards.

Lewis Greenless (8) lost 2/1
