The Newton Shield Comes Home!
In 1960 the Newton Shield Competition was founded by Elderslie’s Harry Burns who was convinced of the merits of a Paisley and District Golf League. The shield was presented to the league by Harry himself who named the shield after the Newton Woods – an integral part of the Elderslie Golf Club. Elderslie Golf Club were the inaugural winners of the tournament followed by a further success in 1971. Since 1971 the Shield has eluded Elderslie Golf Club. That all changed on Sunday 14 July 2013 when David Burns, nephew of Harry Burns, stepped up to collect the Newton Shield at the presentation at Ranfurly Castle after a 5-3 win over Cochrane Castle. The shield was coming home! Pictured opposite is David Burns with the shield and the Newton Woods in the background. The team on the day was: Owen Lavelle, Alasdair McDougall, Lee Jenkins, Robbie McLeod, David Burns, Kenny Bell, Robert Reilly, Alistair Love, Cammy Roberston and Scott Ballantyne. Special mention to Graham Conlan and Scott Ewing who played for the team in the group stage thus contributing to the success. [nggallery id=15]
