|Some memories of Jean Brown - Click to enlarge|
Jean was champion of Erskine 7 times (1964, 1965, 1971 and 1973 -76)
She was runner up in the RLCGA County Championship 3 times - 1967,1970 and 1973 with Heather Anderson winning on each occasion.
Captain of RLCGA - 1975 - 1977
Played for the Scottish Vets Team on numerous occasions
Lady Captain of Erskine G C - 1980
Was a County Team player for many years and in :
1981:Represented Renfrewshire in the Scottish County Finals- won by Northern Counties finals at Douglas Park — Renfrewshire was runner up
1982 : Renfrewshire won the County Finals at Peebles when Wendy Cameron was Captain — It was said young boys were keen to caddy and all the officials thought they would go after the young ones, but no, they wished to caddy for JEAN BROWN as she was such a character !
Her great County "partner in crime" was Mae Noble of Erskine (who now lives in Elie) and both were seen on many occasions, before and after county medals and matches, playing the fruit machines and having much laughter and fun.
Both Jean and Mae were eventually dropped from the County Team in 1988 when Eileen Gibb became Captain and tossed the two old stalwarts out to let way for younger blood!!
