On Thursday 16th of July a good entry of 50 made their way to Port St Mary BC for the annual Dreswick Cup competition once again generously sponsored by Pat O’Meara and family of the Albert Hotel P.S.M. The day ran well in blustery but mostly dry conditions with the heavens only deciding to open as the final got underway, the player who handled the tricky conditions best at the end of the day was Port St Mary’s own Trevor Quayle who got the better of Marowns Neil Withers 21-15 in the final. At the semi final stage Trevor overcame a resurgent Dave Faragher (Castletown) who reached his second semi final of the week, while Neil got the better of the ever dangerous Dave “Dido” Kelly (South Ramsey). Fallers at quarter final stage were a couple of old campaigners in Ian kissack (Marown) and Dave “Barney” Kelly (Douglas) along with newer faces at this stage in the form of Stefan Kelly (South Ramsey) and Chris Oates of Port St Mary.
At the conclusion of play Roy Dixon president of the club gave his thanks to the sponsors as well as everyone else who had made the day a success especially the ladies of the club who once again but on a fantastic spread and also to Sean Lillee for running the sheet and the greenkeepers for supplying a tricky playing surface before presenting the prizes on behalf of the injured sponsor.
