Sunday 22nd January. Fitzpatrick`s Garage Winter League Round 7.
The penultimate round of the Winter League took place in perfect conditions last Sunday. Francis Reilly (20) produced his best round for years scoring a staggering 48 Pts to claim the overall honours on the day. Francie could have reached the magical 50 points but finished 6, 6. In Div 1 Brendan Byrne came out on top, but only after a tie break when 4 players finished on 37 Pts. Jody Duffy (11) was the dominant player in Div 2, posting 42 Pts. Mark G. Kelly (16) shot an excellent 45 Pts to take the Div 3 prize. Early bird Seamus McGivney (21) claimed Div 4 with 39 Pts, with the final category going to Darren O`Meara (25) also with 39 Pts.
The Captain`s Dinner was held last Friday night. The attendance was smaller than in previous years, however all present enjoyed an excellent night out. Andrew O`Neill was the recipient of the Clubman of the Year, as a just reward for all his hard work as Competition Secretary over the last year. The AGM will be held on Tuesday 24th January. Outgoing Captain Adrian Stewart will hand over the reins to Ballycommon`s James Mahon, who will no doubt seek the advice of his sister Patricia the outgoing Lady Captain.
The final round of the Winter League is down for decision next weekend, the last chance for those targeting a place on a team for the match play stages.
