Ayrshire runners up at Strathaven

On day 3 at the Jamboree the home side Lanarkshire were just too strong for Ayrshire as they won the title for the first time since 2004.

Needing a strong start this morning Ayrshire took one of the 3 foursomes matches which left 4 out of 6 singles needed to win. Unfortunately it wasn't to be with Lanarkshire gaining 4 and a half points.

The Ayrshire team did so well finishing second this year at an away venue and look forward to Williamwood next year.
