Cecil Crompton was in scintillating form in Saturday’s Stableford event at Strabane Golf Club. The 14-handicapper amassed an incredible 40 points over the 15-hole course to win by two from runner-up Brian O’Neill. Third place went to Albert McNally who is in such a rich vein of form at the moment. Keith Patterson’s 34 points assured him of the gross prize.

The week’s programme at the club kicked off with the usual Monday team event. Results are as follows:
1. D. Lynch, M. Rouse, P. Ward, P. Sharkey 90 points
2. J. Arbuckle, M. Harkin, P. McGillian, S. Diamond 86 points
3. T. McGranaghan, P. Doyle, P. McAneny, P. McDaid 86 points.

Week Six of the Thursday Club saw Albert McNally notch up yet another victory, his 35.5 return edging him home ahead of Ciaran Kelly whose 35 points gave him a halfpoint to spare over Paddy Doyle. With only a couple of weeks remaining in the Supervalu Springers league, “Easy Money” have donned the leader’s mantle after a superb Week Seven performance. They accumulated 77 points to surge to the head of the table, taking their overall score to 144.5 points. Early pacesetters “Twilight Zone” saw their advantage wiped out but still managed 67 points to hang on to second place. If the “Likely Lads” maintain the form they showed on Sunday they could well improve on their current third place. They carded an impressive 73 points to take their total to 138.5.

Supervalu Sweep winners were:
1. Paddy O’Kane and Frankie Connolly 39 points
2. John Tinney and John Hegarty 39 points
3. Sean McCrossan and Damian Lynch 38 points
