Mens’ Club Sunday 2 July 2017

Last Sunday`s Scratch Cups attracted a large entry and it was good to see a good number of visitors participating. One the visitors claimed the Senior Cup, Thomas O`Connor a plus three handicapper from Athlone shot a two under par 70 to win by one from local ace Eric Hannon who took the runner up spot after a countback. The Junior Cup went to Shane Butler (7) after a good effort for 76, leaving him three clear of Declan Rogers (8) on 79. In the Intermediate category Stephen Egan Srn. (10) shot 77 to finish one better than Nigel Molloy (14) 78. The Minor Cup went to Francis Reilly (21) with 85 gross, which left him comfortably ahead of the Minor pack, runner up being Patrick Mitchell (20) on 90. Castle Barna`s journey in the Central Towns Cup came to an end against a very strong Nenagh side. Despite having the home draw our team couldn’t take advantage, losing two of the three home matches. Best wishes to Lady Captain, Mary Mangan, who hosts the final of her Captain`s Prize next Saturday. Next weekends competition is a GOY Stableford.
