West Linton Challenge Match

On 16th January, we played in the annual match against West Linton for the West Linton Trophy, a very nice glass trophy donated by Colin McCall a number of years ago.

The Penicuik teams were Dave Carr, Tom Alexander, Reg Dunbar and Margaret Carr; and Andrew Lambie, Ronnie Hope, Janette Lambie and Christine Hope.

Both games were close with the lead changing hands.  The first game to finish was Dave Carr v John Dykes, with John taking a single to tie the game at 4-4. Penicuik were looking good in the other game until Shona Watt played a great take out, which turned the game round and resulted in West Linton winning 7-5.

So, congratulations to West Linton for winning the trophy, which had been in Penicuik’s hands for a few years.

The evening ended with convivial refreshments!!
