Paisley Daily Express - - House Home - Craig Ritchie

Five- time win­ners Cochrane Cas­tle have l i f ted the Ren­frew­shire Se­niors Golf League for the first time in al­most 20 years.

The tro­phy was pre­sented at the an­nual prize­giv­ing din­ner by the league match sec­re­tary Alan Philips, fol­low­ing an­other suc­cess­ful sea­son on the fair­ways for the John­stone side as they bat­tled it out for the cov­eted sil­ver­ware.

Ac­cept­ing the tro­phy on be­half of Cochrane Cas­tle, club cap­tain Ian Hen­der­son thanked his play­ers for their con­sis­tent per­for­mances this sea­son and for their per­se­ver­ance over the years as the last time they won was way back in 1999.

David Baird, past cap­tain of Ren­frew, gave a hu­mor­ous and en­ter­tain­ing speech after ac­cept­ing the wooden spoon.

The event was held at Cochrane Cas­tle Golf Club and was at­tended by 94 mem­bers and guests who were en­ter­tained by a su­perb speaker, Bobby Shaw, a re­tired Po­lice Su­per­in­ten­dent.

Orig­i­nally from the Bridgeton area of Glas­gow, Bobby had worked in the John­stone area for sev­eral years dur­ing his long ca­reer.
