Round 4:

Rockmount Vs Cruit Island. 

With a place in the quarter finals of this prestigious competition up for grabs William Blyth lead his team to Cruit for the first leg.  On a beautiful but challenging course Cruit finished with a 5-2 lead.  But with only 7 holes up our boys still were not out of it by any means.  The return leg at Rockmount was played in the manner that these matches should be.  Both the hosts and visitors and their supporters were exemplary in their behaviour and discipline. Unfortunately this was not to be Rockmounts day and Cruit narrowly won the required matches to progress to the quarter finals.  William and his team wish Cruit all the very best in the remainder of the competition and look forward to meeting with them again in the near future.
