Jean Kelly Semi-finals

Castletown had a 15 point advantage on handicap when they visited Port St Mary in the semi-final of the Jean Kelly Memorial team handicap competition on Thursday 26 June. Despite an advantage of 6-3 on games with Val Macfarlane winning to single figures, wins to single figures by Sue Peach and Hannah Kermode together with a win for Marie Ashurst and losing scores in the high teens gave Castletown a win by 1 point before the handicap kicking in increased their lead to 16 points.

Again the result was not dependant on the handicap when Peel Sunset visited South Ramsey. The home side had the better of it in terms of games won, but wins to single figures by Philippa Taylor and Heather Horsburgh, backed by wins from Joyce Kelly and Jean Quine together with solid scores from those who didn’t win their games gave them an eight point advantage on the green.
