FORMER Scottish Challenge winner Jamie McLeary’s late search for a partner came up trumps in the Edinburgh & East of Scotland Alliance invitational greensomes at Winterfield.
He ended up joining forces with Colin Campbell and, on a breezy day on the East Lothian coast, the pair landed the Richardson & Brownlee Trophy with net 63.6 off 4.4.
Uphall pair Ron Comber John McDermott finished second on 64.2, followed by the Millars, Andrew and Peter of Musselburgh, on 65.6.
Clear winners of the top scratch prize were Gullane trainee Keir McNicoll and his experienced amateur partner Robert Jack. They carded a level-par 65 to win finish four shots ahead of two pairings – Ian Taylor (Royal Burgess)/Alan O’Neill (West Lothian) and Eric Walker and Don West of Burntisland.
