A strong showing by our Marquis Shield team on Sunday produced awesome results! Well done to the team – Senior: Kieran Pierey, Noel Coombe, Danny Pierey and Nigel Pearson, Intermediate: Steven McHardy, Lionel Toheriri, Shaun Smith and Richard Stewart and Juniors: Mark Thomson, Brett MacDougall, Tony Lozell and Todd McHardy. The team won their singles matches 8 ½ to 3 ½ and fourball matches 5 to 1 to take the team win of 4 points. Congratulations to you all.

The team’s standings are 1st Marquis Shield (overall points), 2nd Workman Cup (senior off the stick), 2nd Intermediate Cup (intermediates on handicap), and 1st Sutherland Trophy (juniors on handicap). Looks like we might need to find a more permanent home for the Sutherland Trophy instead of propping it against the wall or unit. The next outing is on 13th June at Martinborough against the home team.


On Monday, the Silver team of Pam Bisset, Lindy Wheeler, Colleen Daysh and Deb Henricksen played Rangatira Blue in trying conditions at Wanganui and had a half while the District team played Castlecliff at Levin and lost 1-4.

Next Monday, the teams play another round. The Silver team as above play at Marton vs Eketahuna while the District team of Pam Huddleston, Margaret Brislane, Paula McCool and Trish Cuttance will play at Manawatu vs Castlecliff. Good luck, ladies.
