Midlothian field same team for Scottish county finals

Midlothian have kept faith with a tried and tested side for the Scottish Women's County golf finals at Baberton later this month.
The selectors have picked the same players who won the East title earlier in the year.
A mix of youth and experience worked a treat on that occasion and there appeared to be no real need to make any changes for an event that will see them fight it out with Galloway, Northern Counties and Renfrewshire for the right to be crowned Scottish champions.
Midlothian open their campaign against Galloway on Friday, 18 September, before facing Renfrewshire then Northern Counties over the following two days.
As part of their preparations for the event, Midlothian recently took on a Baberton men's team at the Juniper Green course, giving a good account of themselves even though they lost narrowly.
Meanwhile, Baberton's Fiona McLaren and Louise Fraser from the host club were the main winners in the Midlothian Women's Autumn Meeting at Kingsknowe. McLaren lifted the McIntyre Trophy with a nett 69 off 14, while Fraser claimed the Lady Ford Cup with a scratch 74.
Midlothian team for the county finals:
K Blackwood (Craigmillar Park)
L Fraser (Kingsknowe)
C Hargan (Mortonhall)
C MacDonald (Gullane Ladies)
K Marshall (Baberton)
W Nicholson (Broomieknowe)
J Turner (Craigielaw)
R Watton (Mortonhall)
G MacDonald (Craigielaw).

+Kirkwoodgolf invites the other three qualifying counties - Galloway, Renfrewshire and Northern Counties - to send the names of their selected players for the Scottish county finals to so that we can display them as we have done with Midlothian.
