Perseverance pays off as seniors claim title
Golfers reflect on past successes at annual prizegiving
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.
The Renfrewshire Seniors Golf League would like to thank hosts Cochrane Castle Golf Club for the exceptional meal, hospitality received and especially Liz and Alan Shearer and their staff for the service they provided.
