Roberts Cup success for Wilson’s team

Newtownstewart Golf Club’s winning Roberts Cup team.

CHRIS Wilson’s Roberts Cup team concluded a great year for Newtownstewart Golf Club when they won the trophy after a very exciting match against Omagh.

The tie finished all-square, but Newtownstewart won by virtue of being one hole up. Well done to all the players who contributed in the campaign.

In Sunday’s October Monthly Medal, recently returned Raymond Quinn shot a fine 65 to win from John McCaffrey and goes forward to the play-offs in October.

Results: 1, Raymond Quinn (7), 65 nett; 2, John McCaffrey (13), 68; 3, Danny Ball (12), 68; gross, Mark Haran (10), 80.

Anita McKay made it two wins in three weeks when she won the P McDermott & Sons Stableford last Thursday from Valerie Vaughan.

Results: 1, Anita McKay (31), 38pts; 2, Valerie Vaughan (22), 37pts; 3, Steph Rennie (21), 33pts; 9-hole winner, Hazel Marshall (34), 16pts; Novice 9 hole winner, Joyce Thompson, 16pts; Gross Winner, Therese Mullan.
