Congratulations to our Metropolitan Cup team who defeated Portmarnock on Saturday over 2 legs to win 10-8. After winning the first leg 8-1, Greystones faced an early onslaught by Portmarnock who won the first 5 matches as well as the final 2 games to leave the matches all square at 8-8 with just 2 games left on the course. That left Shay O’Keefe and John Egan needing to win at least one point with holes running out. First up, Shay won on the 18th where a superb long-distance lag putt effectively closed out his match. Shortly after, John Egan managed to also win on 18 to win the Club’s second pennant of the year. A big congratulations to all of the panel, players, caddies, the team manager Martin Commons, our conveynor Paul Keane and of course Barry Davis. Several months of hard work has paid off!
