The June Medal was last weekend`s competition and it saw Martin G. Kelly (21) claim his biggest win to date in Castle Barna. Martin shot a great 65 net, obviously benefiting from some coaching from his grandson Adam. First Gross went to Derek Hannon (0) with a three under 69, getting the better of Stephen Egan Jr (+1) on countback, Stephen having to be content with an eventual 4th Net. Two weeks ago Ollie Scally (17) won the May Medal and the big Ballycommon man almost did it again, shooting a 66 Net to miss out on top spot by one shot. 3rd Net went to Bracklin`s Joe Mann (16) with a tidy round of 68. Kilbeggan`s Declan Rogers (8) showed a return to form to collect 5th Net with 70.
Midweek results saw Artur Geszczak (12) take the Thursday Open with 38 Pts, while Adrian Stewart scored a great 23 Pts to claim the Thursday Nine Hole League encounter. Congratulations to Eoin O’Sullivan winning his first Thursday OPEN at Castle Barna on 25th May.
