INTERCLUBS – Liam Whyte’s Pierce Purcell team claimed a major scalp in the first round of this years competition, knocking out Co Sligo Golf Club (Rosses Point), who have won the All Ireland final of this tournament on several occasions. The win was achieved despite Boyle having the disadvantage of 3 matches in Rosses Point and 2 in Boyle. Charlie O’Donnell and Gerry Carty won their match on the 17th in Boyle, Liam Whyte and Sean Heslin had a tighter game, not overcoming their opposites until the 20th. Word came through from the Point that Boyle had won 2 matches there – Brendan Gaffney and Paul Connolly winning 3 holes up with 2 to play, and first time interclub players Lochlann Conboy and Lee McKillen trouncing their opposites, 5 holes up with 4 to play. Boyle’s 3rd pairing of David Gallagher and Jim Suffin were called in at this point as the match had been won, they were level with their opposites on the 14th so Boyle could well have won this match as well. Congratulations to all. Our Pierce Purcell team now take on Strandhill in the second round in 2 weeks.
This week we wish good luck to John McGuinns All Ireland Fourball team vs Rosses Point this Wednesday the 23rd, and Paddy McLoughlins Seniors in the Fred Perry Cup (yet again vs Rosses Point) the following day, Thursday the 24th. Members are welcome to come up and support the teams in these matches.
