Juniors lose out in final of Dick Walsh Trophy

Newlands Juniors Narrowly Lose Out in Dick Walsh Final – after a pulsating semi final in Castle Golf Club last Sunday morning against Elm Park in which Adam Fearon holed the winning putt on the 22nd hole, the Newlands team of Leo Fearon/Matthew Rockett, Adam Fearon/Brian Elliott and Ellen Rockett/Lucy Kavanagh made it through to the final of the Dick Walsh Trophy on a 2-1 scoreline. The same boys pairings faced Grange in the afternoon final and Eva Coghlan/Orlaith Leahy came in for Ellen/Lucy – another closely fought and high quality match ensued, with two games going all the way to the 18th before Grange emerged triumphant. Newlands team manager, Ken Legros, was delighted with how the players played on the day and also how they conducted themselves on and off the course – “they were a credit to Newlands Golf Club”. The team received great support too, with past captains , current captains , current vice captains and many more in attendance throughout the day – this was very much appreciated by Ken and the team. Ken would also like to thank Alex Raymond and David Lawley, who both played in the group stages of the competition and helped Newlands to reach the play offs, but were unfortunately not available to play last Sunday.
