Wooden Spoon for Scotland at The Senior Womens's Home Internationals

 Scotland drew their "wooden spoon" final match with Wales at the Senior Women's Home Internationals at Newport, Wales.
The Scots led Wales 2-1 after the morning foursomes and started the singles well with Sheena Wood winning her third singles tie in a row, 3 and 2 against Ann Lewis, and Gillian Kyle winning out in the country, 8 and 7, against Patricia Fernon.
But Scotland lost the last three single, Frances Millar going down 5 and 3, Lesley Lloyd losing 2 and 1, and Donna Jackson being beaten 3 and 2.

Wales finished with a slightly better "games won" column, 9 to Scotland's 8.5, and so Scotland were placed last.

In the title-deciding match, Ireland and England, the two 100 per cent teams after two days of action, were drawing 1.5 apiece after the foursomes but wins by Gertie McMullen, Sheena McElroy and Laura Webb in the singles gave the Irish a 4.5-3.5 victory, ending England's bid for a fourth title in a row.

Position of Secretary and Treasurer for SVLGA

The SVLGA Secretary/Treasurer Alison Houston is not standing for a further term of office after the AGM in September 2018, having served for 4 years.  We are therefore looking for a replacement.

As there is quite a lot of work involved with this position, it has been agreed that it could be split, and we can appoint a Secretary and a Treasurer.  There is currently an honorarium for the Secretary position, and an honorarium would also be available for the Treasurer position.

If anyone would like to discuss what is involved as Secretary/Treasurer of  SVLGA please contact me on 07714 245173 or e mail

If you would like to propose anyone, please get in touch.  It would be advantageous for the new lady to be in contact with Alison from time to time to get a feel for what is required during the year.

Alison Houston
SVLGA Secretary
