Captain’s Blog (S Stokoe)
We have just passed the halfway point in the season and while Heworth have a healthy lead at the top of the table, after some good results in June ourselves, South Moor and Wearside are only separated by 4 points. All to play for!!
In the Clark Cup we were defeated by South Shields, a tough ask at their course.
However we have advanced to the semi final of the League Knockout Handicap Trophy courtesy of a cracking home win against Chester le Street who top division A at present.
Looking forward to this month, we have the following league fixtures,
2nd July, Hobson (A)
9th July, Heworth (H)
16th July, City of Newcastle (A)
23rd July, Crook (A)
30th July, Wearside (H)
Cup Matches to be arranged for July are,
Houghton le Spring (A), Semi Final, League knockout trophy
The course is now coming into its own with the advent of the warmer weather assisted by one or two deluges which will undoubtedly help the overall condition.
Thank you to Dave and his team for their persistence during some trying early season conditions.
DH8golf are now up and running with one or two innovative ideas being trialled, I think successfully. Please support them whenever you feel able.
A massive thank you to Stuart Hastings (Jim Hastings Ltd) for the donation of 2 new 65‘’ TV’ s for the Lounge which have ‘Sky’ on them for the occasions when we have functions in the main room. Your generosity is much appreciated, Stuart.
On a sadder note Dave Quinn, our Secretary/Treasurer is to leave us at the end of July due to family and personal commitments. Although Dave’s time in the post has been short, the impression and impact he has had has been huge.
