LADIES at Bearsden Lawn Tennis Club have retained the West of Scotland Veterans’ Doubles Knockout Cup.

The victorious Ladies Team completed the hat-trick of titles by defeating Titwood by three sets to one.

And the five winners — Marlene Waudby, Muriel Walker, Moira Burt, Kate Ross and Jean Ogilvie — were all smiles as they lifted the trophy at the Tennis West of Scotland AGM held at the David Lloyd Club in Renfrew.

Meanwhile, youngster Fraser Edwards became the youngest ever player to win the Bearsden’s most improved player of the year award.

The prodigious nine-year-old was presented with his befitting reward for a string of impressive performances in Mini Tennis competitions in the past season.

The trophy, named the Barry Morris Salver, comes with great distinction and with glowing remarks from club president John Beeley.

He said: “Fraser has made great progress this year through club and West of Scotland coaching and, with great encouragement from his parents, entering tournaments almost every weekend.

“He is the youngest player to receive this award in the 25 years over which it has been presented.”

Meanwhile, coach Gordon Wilson was celebrating after his achievements were recognised at East Dunbartonshire’s coaching awards. He has now been put forward for a national prize.
