Newlands in Sparkling Form in Mary McKenna Diamond Trophy
Newlands vs Slade Valley – 24th June 2019
The Mary McKenna team had a super win against Slade Valley on Monday evening. No words could accurately describe the great golf that was played in the matches, the nail biting finish and the excitement of the win. Anne Croft and Marie Fitzgerald put an early point on the board, winning on the 14th hole. After that, the matches were very tight all the way round and so with two matches heading to the 19th hole, Ger Simpson and Fionnuala Croskery won their match and our third point. A hard earned point too, having come back from 3 down, to win on the 19th hole was very sweet. Well done to a great team, Patricia Heffernan and Denise Tobin, Anne Croft and Marie Fitzgerald, Ger Simpson and Fionnuala Croskery, VC Loretto Keane and Frances Mahon, Bernie Keppel and Sophia McFadden, subs Pat O’Leary and Madge Deane, you were all absolutely brilliant, you represented Newlands so well and we are all so proud of you.
Congratulations to managers, Nuala LeGros and Mary K. O’Mahony, a well deserved win to book your spot in the Leinster semi-finals.
Our semi-final match will be against Borris, Co. Carlow, on Wednesday 10 July at 1:30 pm in Borris GC.
