GDSC Fours Championship

It has been another busy week on the greens. Firstly, I would like to congratulate this years Club Fours Champions Darren Brown, Allan Gough, Barry Williams and Ray Grant who were too strong on the day for their opponents, the team skipped by Jamie Pye. Ray’s team were put together in the last minute however, in this game they got off to a great start and maintained their momentum throughout the entire match to record a 29 to 12 victory. Well done and well played to all who participated in this entertaining game.

The Club Singles semi-finalists were decided on the weekend. The first to book his place was M Walsh who looked in ominous form defeating T Dalton 31 to 10. He will be facing G Harrison who played too well for G Taylor, winning 31 to 12.

The other semi-final game will be between K Garner, who won over K Evans 31 to 9, and G Maxted who held off a determined A Knox 31 to 26. These are shaping up to be great games of singles and will be played this Saturday afternoon at the GDSC.

Friday had 36 bowlers at the GDSC enjoying the conditions. Winners were S McClymont and M Walsh, with B Hall and T MacDonald coming out as runners up and A Graham and D Brown coming out as the Lucky Losers. There were only two good bowlers on the day but the Tony’s Handyman and Home Maintenance resting toucher went to P Heath with an early time of 13:20.
