Winter League Results – Sat 14th Oct

Section 1 Winner     M Mooney     20 pts

Section 2 Winner     B Rogers       19 pts bb6

Section 3 Winner     S Gallaher     19 pts bb6


Last week golfers were denied their round of golf, due to heavy rain and flooded Fairways. This week however they were back with a vengeance recording very good scores. In the first week of the Norman Kennedy Spoon Competition Paul Logan carded a magnificent 27pts over nine holes – past records are being checked to find if this has been bettered. In second place Norman Kennedy returned 20pts, and in third place Norman Armstrong 17pts, after a count-back with Denis Logan and Harry Graham.

We have reached the final three matches of the Stan Griffin Cup when Derek Bell, will play Bill Eakin, then the winner will play John Cochrane in the Final. Bill Jamieson received a very warm welcome on his social visit, after long break.
