Seniors Singles Matchplay Knockout - Draws for the first two rounds have been made and can be seen on the Singles Knockout page. Some interesting duels - 8 handicapper Don Pennycook plays 9 handicap Alan Church, Ron Kent plays Brian White both 11 handicaps, with the winners of those two matches meeting each other, meaning that only one of that four will reach the last eight. Six previous winners are competing, three of them two time winners so could we see the first three time winner this year. All to play for - good luck!
Winter League - There will be new winners in this year's competition, the final is Ernie Armstrong & Alan Church versus Steve Major & Adrian Stannard.
