Winter League - The Final
It was well worth the wait for our Winter League Final last Sunday and what a final we had. Congratulations to both teams the Poppys and the McCann Cans who gave such enjoyment to the spectators. The McCann Cans took both foursomes and starting the singles they were 4 nil up. But the Poppys fought their way back to six all and so we were set for a nine hole playoff.
We then had a family affair brother in law plays brother in law. Peter Anderson for the Poppys and Peter Keogh for the McCann Cans and after nine holes it was still all square so we now had sudden death. Peter Keogh just piped Peter Anderson on the second tie hole for the McCann Cans to win the Winter League for the first time. Well done to both teams it was one of the most exciting finals we have had and it was played in a very sporting manner.
It was great to see both teams sitting together enjoying their well earned lunch after the final. Thank you to our Lady Captain Barbara Furlong on organising and preparing the food for both the teams and supporters and to both Captains for serving us our food. It was great to see the brother in laws in deep conversation and having a laugh together this is what the sport is all about well done.
May we again take this opportunity of thanking sincerely Halpenny Golf for their generous sponsorship of this competition. We as a Club certainly appreciate this continuous sponsorship.
