Darcy Trophy Match Powerscourt V Greystones in Powerscourt March 1st 2020.
Greystones played their fifth group match in the Darcy Trophy away to Powerscourt yesterday in incredibly tough conditions. The conditions together with the early start of 7.30am made this a daunting prospect but for the fifth time in this competition the Darcy team were equal to the challenge.
David Byrne set the tone for an impressively resilient performance with a 6&5 win in the opening singles and our Team Captain Alan Condron won his singles match 3&2. In the last match on the course Eddie Lonergan and Daniel O’ Byrne secured a hard fought halve to ensure the overall match was drawn at 2 &1/2 points each.
This leaves Greystones unbeaten and top of our group with 7 points from five matches. We have won both our home matches and drawn our three away matches. Our final match is at home to Druid’s Heath on March 15th and all support would be very welcome.
Finally many thanks to President Liam O’ Shea, Kieran O’Carroll and Colm Mulcahy for coming up to Powerscourt and supporting the team. As always it was very much appreciated.
