Winter league

On a weekend with plenty shocks on the football front (even Hearts got beat ) thankfully there was no such shocks at Duddingston yesterday where we had an emphatic 4-0 win over Liberton.

Match number 1 saw Deek & Gus stroll round in a couple of hours or so and win 7&6. With approx. 100 years of loyal service to DGC between them I fancied them strongly to win this one.

Match number 2 saw Mikey Hymers & Scott Speakman up against 2 of the Lothians young stars (Anthony Blaney & Kieran Cantley) but DGC’s young stars lead for most of the way and won 2&1. A fantastic result for Mikey & Scott. Kieran did manage to carry the burn at the 8th from the back tee but as the saying goes……………”Drive for show……………”

Match number 3 saw Paul Heggie & Stuart McLean 4 up at the turn and they strolled to a comfortable 4&3 victory and the final match saw Shaun Gordon and Davie Graham record another fine 4&3 victory after being 3 up at the turn.

With Craigmillar Park and Prestonfield drawing 2-2 we now top the table on goal difference with our final match at Craigmillar Park on 8th February.
