The Winter League, sponsored by Shane McCrory of Bann Hire Company, was a great success and a lot of fun.
After six rounds of intense competition, Sean McGreevey’s Team Seven were deserving winners. They had 12 strong players who each contributed to the winning total.
The prizes were presented at a special dinner last Saturday evening and it was a very enjoyable occasion. Hopefully the good news will spread amongst the members and we will have double the entry next winter.
