Club Notes – 19th November 2012

LAST QUALIFYING WEEK IN WINTER CUP

Sunday will be crunch week in this years Sperrin Springs Winter Cup with the four semi-final positions up for decision.
In section (A) long time leaders Paddy O’Kane and Senan Roarty continue to head the table and remain unbeaten after 4 series of matches,  they lead by 1.5pts from their closest rivals who they met this week, Aidan Boyle and John McGettigan, a half match or a win will guarantee their place in the semi-finals although their opponents will also be seeking a win that will also secure their last four place.  Stephen McCay and Ciaran Duffy are currently in third place and also remain unbeaten after taking maximum points last Sunday, they will play Stephen Curry and Gerard Foley knowing that their semi final ambitions are very much still in their own hands. The remaining pairs towards the top of the table will be hoping for a bizarre sequence of results in the other fixtures that will keep their faint hopes alive.

In Section (B) Cathal McLaughlin and Joey Roulstone have only dropped 1 point to date, but still have not secured their top 4 spot although one more point from their fixture with Paul O’Neill and Brendan O’Neill will take them through, although 3.5 pts will secure a place for the O’Neill duo. Dermott Corry and Club Captain, Sean Macintyre still remain with hope despite losing in week two if they can take maximum points from their tie with Martin Keys and Lyndsay Boyd they may just qualify.
A few other pairs are not without ambition too but need to win well and hope for other favourable results.

Winter Cup participants are cordially reminded that the Swiss system of matchplay must be strictly adhered to, all matches must be decided by one point for each nine and two points for the match, any deviation from these rules will see both teams having deemed to have gained no points!
