As you can see we have a tremendous wealth of talent in our squads. P&K are in a fantastic position in that we had 20 girls with a handicap of 6 or less hoping for a place, but unfortunatley the places are limited and as you can imagine it is a major headache for the selectors. and one which It was a very difficult decision to select the sdqua and a great bunch of girls who are all out to do the very best they can for P&K.
Our coaching sessions will take place over the winter and Shona Leighton our match secretary is in the process of arranging practice matches against other counties and perhaps against Scratch League teams! So if you have a Gents of Ladies Scratch Team who would like to offer a practice match with the girls please contact Shona or myself and we would be delighted to arrange a date!
We have had one coaching session at Gleneagles already on what was a rather cold day, however the girls concentrated on the long game and coaches Andrew and John gave the girls a talk on the psychological side of the game.
Below are a few photos of the girls in action!
Our winter coaching has started in earnest for our Juniors, with our Elite Squad going along to Gleneagles on Sunday and enjoying some short game coaching and some tips on how to prepare themselves for play both in terms of your game and your metal attitude. Very interesting!
The Elite squads for this year are:
Group 1. Emily Aird (Strathmore), Megan Aird (Strathmore), Ailie Burnett (Dunkeld), Erin Millar (Pitlochry), Nicola robertson (Dunblane) and Eilidh Watson (Muckhart)
Group 2. Laura Aitken (Killin), Caitlin Bartrop (Whitemoss), Claire Gadsby (Muthill), Hannah Robb (Strathmore), Kathry Robertson (Auchterarder), Siobhan Teague (Auchterarder)
A huge thank you also go to Senior Squad girls Emily Ogilvy and Laura Walker who came along on Sunday to offer support and encouragement to all our girls. They were great.
I will post photos of the juniors soon, I completely forgot on Sunday!!
