Chris and team successful at Newtown

CHRIS Wilson's Roberts Cup Team concluded a great year for Newtownstewart Golf Club when they won the Roberts Cup after a very exciting match against Omagh.

The tie finished all square but Newtownstewart won by virtue of being 1 hole up.

In Sunday's October Monthly Medal competition the recently returned Raymond Quinn shot a fine 65 to win – with John McCaffrey in second place – and goes forward to the playoffs in October. Saturday's Open Stableford was won by Raymond Verner from Raymond Baxter.
