Captain Tom urges support for cup final teams

Captain Tom Calvert is calling on players and members alike to get behind the club's Sam Rutherford and Senior Cowdy cup teams as they begin battle in their respective competition finals this week.

Paul Kelly's Sam Rutherford team take on defending champions Tandragee Golf Club on 18 and 25 September.

These two teams surprisingly met in the final last year with Tandragee emerging as convincing winners, but the County Armagh outfit are determined to reverse this this time around. An impressive semi-final performance against Cloverhill Golf Club will certainly have boosted confidence in the team who will play their first leg away from home.

"It's a superb achievement to reach the final of the Sam Rutherford for a second successive year and it would be just brilliant if we could win it," said club Captain Tom Calvert.

"The home leg on Sunday 25the will obviously be the big decider and it would be nice to see a good crowd of supporters on the course cheering Paul's team on," he added.

On the same day John White's Senior Cowdy team launch their final campaign away to Lurgan Golf Club, and two weeks later they bring their opponents to County Armagh where again a huge crowd will be enouraged to get behind the home team.

"We can all be the 'extra man' for both these teams by turning out in numbers to support them," said club captain Tom. "Two trophies in two weeks would be a magnificent achievement and a fitting end to an excellent competitive season."
