Golf: Dick praised for fine show

Scott Knowles today praised the contribution of his Kingsknowe clubmate Allyn Dick after Scotland finished their Home Internationals campaign on a high at Ashburnham.

Capital man Knowles had watched his side lose narrowly to host nation Wales and England on the opening two days but saw his team record a commanding 10-5 win over Ireland yesterday to avoid the wooden spoon. Knowles said: "Allyn had an exceptional first Home Internationals. All our new caps earned points and they all loved it." England, the current European Team champs, romped to a second successive title with an 11-4 defeat of Wales.
