Club Notes – 11th November 2014

UntitledSaturday’s play at Strabane was reduced to 13 holes when the River Mourne burst its banks on Thursday past flooding the 9th & 10th holes along the river. The winner with 30 pts was the very much in form John Brolly (18) who just got up on break of tie from Ronnie Wiley (12) with Damian Carey (14) in third place with 29 pts, Fred McGavigan(5) took the gross prize with a one over par return of 25 gross pts.
This coming Saturday will weather permitting be back to 15 holes.

No play was possible at all in the Thursday club but it should also resume with a 15 holes competition this week.

Nine teams took part in the Latest Monday teams Competition with Dermott Corry, Rory McColgan, Colin McCafferty and Kevin McGinley the winners with 87.75 nett, the runners up were Denis Porter, Jimmy Wasson, Hugh Casey and George Turner with 83 pts nett.

Sperrin Springs Winter Cup
Thankfully the flood waters had relented somewhat by Sunday to allow play in the Sperrin Springs Winter Cup to proceed as planned.
In Section (A) Conal Cooke and Donal Cairns are tied at the top of the table on 15.5 pts with Fred McGavigan & Maurice Doherty, the latter pair having beaten long time leaders Michael Kelly and Sean Macintyre on Sunday. The leading two are not drawn to meet in the section so their results against other opposition will decide the final outcome of this one.
In Section (B) the leaders also tasted defeat for the first time David Friel & George McCay going down to Joe & Ciaran Doherty only picking up half a point, as a result the Doherty Pairing have moved into a joint lead with Shane McLaughlin and Brian Forrester on 12.5 pts there are some interesting matches to come in this section with four pairings still right in contention.   
Section (C) looks to be a two horse race between Michael Neeson & Brian Kelly who are tied on 15 pts with Oliver Creswell and Joe Kennedy who dropped two points on Sunday playing out a tied match. Again here the leading pairs are not scheduled to meet and their other results will be vital in determining the final outcome in a fort-nights time.       
Section (D) is also between the leading two pairings with Chris Timoney and Neil Alcock just in front on 17 pts just clear of Frankie Connolly and Eric Reid these pairings are due to play each other on the final week which should decide the outcome of the section.
