Last Sundays competition had to be cancelled due to the constant rainfall. This was to be the first GOY qualifier of the year but will now be re-scheduled later in the season. The rain was well established early Saturday afternoon when the years first interclub matches got underway. First up was the Barton Cup clash against Moyvalley who had the advantage of three home matches. Despite some good individual performances the Castle Barna pairings could not match their opposition and made a tame exit at the first hurdle on a 0.5 to 4.5 scoreline.
Next up were the Irish Fourball team against neighbors New Forest. The team was hastily put together by manager Seamie Feerey after a late notification. With conditions deteriorating all the time the three home pairings kept their concentration, with Stephen Comerford/Micky Dunne, Wes Daly/Andrew O`Neill and Jimmy Slattery/Sean Doyle securing the necessary three wins to send the team through to a next round clash against Glasson.
Next Weekends competition is a Fourball sponsored by JD Scanlon & Company, Solicitors. This event will also be the qualifier for the club Fourball matchplay. Interclub activity continues with the Irish Mixed Foresomes team up against Glasson.
