The first match out was Iain Mulholland and Peter Magee who halved against a strong pair. Noel Stewart and Gavin Harbinson won 5&4, Martin Pattererson
Unfortunately Lurgan couldn’t secure the necessary points to move onto the next round of the Rossmore Cup. This was a very close contest but Rossmore just managed to edge ahead.
Iain Mullholland and Peter Magee played well to win 2&1. Noel Stewart and Gavin Harbinson ran up against 2 guys who were under par better ball and lost 3&2. Martin Patterson and Conor Thompson played great to win 6&5. Bill Walter and team captain Neil Dillon needed at least a half to force tie holes but unfortunately they lost a very close match by 2&1. Close match played in great spirit and fine effort from our guys against a team who could retain their title in this competition
Lurgan’s Ulster Cup had a very narrow victory against a competitive City of Belfast GC team. In the end Lurgan won by 4 holes, mainly thanks to strong wins by Martin Patterson, Ian McMurray, Brain Bassett and Chris Donald.

Winners were Brian Bassett Jnr, Martin Patterson and Ian Cousins. The match is delicately poised with the return leg this Sunday at 1.30pm.
Team will be: Ian McMurray, Brian Bassett Jnr, Martin Patterson, Chris Donald, Brian Doley, Neil Dillon and Ian Cousins

MUSL results from Warrenpoint – 125 pts. Aidan Thornbury & Bryan Turkington 38pts; Ian McMurray & Eugene Maguire 39pts and a terrific 48pts (5 birdies) from Peter Gordon & Sean Wilson. Scoring from all teams playing seemed to be generally good, so not expecting to advance our league position.
