Golf: East quartet in Euro win.

FOUR east coast aces helped Scotland claim victory on Saturday at the European Youths' Team Championship in Ireland.

Wallace Booth (Crieff), Kevin McAlpine (Alyth), George Murray (Earlsferry Thistle) and Lloyd Saltman (Craigielaw) were in a six-man squad who beat old foes England at the Island Club near Dublin in a dramatic final that went down to the last game.

Scottish Boys' Stroke Play Champion Richie Ramsay (Royal Aberdeen) secured the last vital point to make the victory safe.

Ramsay trailed England's Jamie Moul at the turn but managed turn a one-hole deficit into a two-hole advantage to give the Scots a 4-3 win.

The match had been finely balanced after the morning foursomes. Ramsay and George Murray overcame the formidable duo of James Heath and Matthew Richardson 3&2 before England levelled the match when Lloyd Saltman (Craigielaw) and Kevin McAlpine (Alyth) lost 4&3.

But wins in the singles by Murray, Jamieson and Ramsay were enough to enable the Scots to avenge their final defeat to the Auld Enemy four years ago.

#A SIX-MAN Scotland team finished fifth in the European boys' team event in Kotka, Finland.

Kilmarnock Barassie pair David Addison and Robert McKnight, Colville Park's Paul O'Hara, Scott Henry (Cardross), Crow Wood ace Garry Wood and Fraserburgh's Jordan Findlay enjoyed victories over Germany and Sweden but lost to Belgium.
