Jimmy Ewing, Ewan McTaggart, David Cameron and Willie Glen won the inaugural Archie Shaw Memorial Trophy at Rothesay Golf Club on Saturday.

Seventeen four-man teams took part in the competition, with the two best net scores counting at each hole and a ¾ handicap allowance, and a total of 120 - 61 on the front nine and 59 coming home - gave the winners a three-shot margin of victory.

Stuart Strathie, Billy McFarlane, Jack Jones and Bobby Liddell finished second on 123, with Angus Murray, Ivan Cowie, Neil MacLeod and Donnie McDermid completing the podium places thanks to a better back nine which forced Stevie McDonald, Jimmy Burke, Tommy Kilpatrick and Richard Dunn into fourth, both teams having returned scores of 126.
