The Back pitch was successfully replaced in the past week. This was only possible after support from the National Lottery Sports Capital Grants scheme and the stellar work of Paul Patterson and the team at Tony Patterson Sportsgrounds who got the pitch completeed ahead of schedule and on target!
The ladies section have started back pre-season for the new season this past week. Get in contact with angharad @ firstname.lastname@example.org for full details!! Pass them onto those who have caught the the bug after the ladies teams heroics in London this summer, the more the merrier!
Alongside the exploits of the Irish Ladies in London the Club had plenty of representation at Masters level across the summer to cheer on. Davy Sterrit, Ed Simpson and Rob Johnson were part of the Irish Men's Over 50s side that finished 5th in the Exin Masters World Cup in Barcelona at the end of July. They beat New Zealand 4-1 in the 5th/6th play-off.
At the same time, Cedric Christie was part of the Over 55s squad in Barcelona. Roger West and Rob Haughton represented the Over 60s and Stuart Swizter was part of the Over 65s from earlier in the summer. Congratulations gents!
