    in my opinion the spur you left in the trunk is too low, most of all in the right hand the branch doesn’t need to be renew. I would simply use the first shoot (lower-external) from the cane to build up a spur next year and I would use the second shoot for the new cane.

    Concerning the old spur in the right hand (up the head) you could :

    – clean the shoots in spring ( you need 2 well-developed shoots in the old cane ).

    – keep the shoots and cut them off in winter (create a spare wood).

    The low cane on the right hand in the trunk you should clean all the shoot and cut it off in winter respecting the basal buds.
