Congratulations to our Junior Scratch Matchplay team who defeated a very strong Cruit Island team on Tue evening. The matches were so close and we just managed a 4-3 win in a nail biting finish. Cruit came out strong and were well up in most matches after 9 holes.
Robert Weherly secured the first point for Cruit in Cloughaneely beating our own Chris McCallion on the 18th green. Two further wins away in Cruit for Gillespie & Melly put us under big pressure. Seán Ó Gallchóir won at home 3&2 to Johndy Boyle. The score was 3-1 to Cruit. Danny McNulty had a brilliant win over Gerard Breslin on the 18th away in Cruit to secure the much needed away point. Danny’s short game was top notch rumour has it. The score 3-2.
At home, Dermot McCallion was 2down after 12 to Chris Walsh. Paul Doherty was 3 down after 9 holes to Sean Hyland. We looked down and out. However strong performances by both men in the back 9 meant a very nervy finish. Dermot beat Chris Walsh on the 18th in a very high standard match 1up. Paul Doherty battled hard and was 1up playing 18 and won the last to win 2up. A brilliant and exciting finish. Very well done to all the lads.
We would like to thank Michael Boyle and Cruit Island Golf Club for a very sporting match. A gallant effort by the Cruit lads.
We have two more teams in action this week; away draw in the Donegal League Vs Murvagh on Saturday. We face Carrickfergus GC from Co. Antrim on Sunday in a home draw in the Ulster quarter final of the Jimmy Bruen Shield. Best of luck to all players.
Owenie Pro McGee’s big day is on Saturday 24th July. Timesheet now open please book on clubnet and the draw will be made Friday 23rd. More information will be sent out by whatsapp and email to Club Members during the week.
