WBS MARTINBOROUGH FC – UPDATE

June 11, 2018 June2018, Sports Comments Off on WBS MARTINBOROUGH FC – UPDATE

It has been a while since I last wrote about the club and we have had a few changes – mainly with a newly formed committee to oversee both the Junior and Senior teams and ensure that moving forward we continue to grow as a Community based club.

We have 6 Junior teams entered in various grades this year and they kicked off their campaigns a few weeks ago and have performed exceptionally well to date – I have had the pleasure in watching most of them so far and each player has worn their shirt and represented Martinborough with pride.

The Junior Festival was held here on 26th May (with 2 more to follow) and we had a fantastic turn out and would also like to thank the team at Mitre 10 for the BBQ and the team at P & K for the food as it is always appreciated.

I would also like to give a special mention to Matt and his team at Burger Craft here in Martinborough as they are an additional sponsor of the Senior team and the club looks forward to supporting Matt and his team as much as he is looking forward to supporting us. … Continue Reading

MARTINBOROUGH GOLF REPORT

May 23, 2018 May 2018, Sports Comments Off on MARTINBOROUGH GOLF REPORT

The Weather hasn’t been to kind to our  Womens Captain in the month of April, Elaine has rescheduled more fixtures than the rest of us had to for the entire year due to the inclement weather on a Wednesday. Finally though mid month the sun shone  and there was very little space in the carpark by 9am. Whats more the Bar was open, a rarity on a Wednesday, thanks to the efforts of Marie Scrimshaw. Marie joins the Exclusive One Club  with a superb Hole in One on the 6th Hole, and naturally picked up the All Teed Up NTP on that hole.

The Weeks competition was  HPMC Stableford and was  won by Jenny Wilkie.  In second place was Ju Allen on a countback from Player of the Day Marie Scrimshaw. Congrats to you for holding it together to complete your round.  Elaine Sutherland got the only two of the day.  Cafe Medici  NTP No 8 was won by Elaine Howe.

There were twenty two entered into the Tuesday Grumpies. The competition was Stableford with 1st place going to Andrew Lawler on 38 pts. 2nd Adrian Blackett 37 pts.  Not sure what happened to the four who misplaced their cards, guessing they may have had a spot of bother. … Continue Reading
