Holly and Chris win Morgan Tucker Open

Published

on

THE FAMOUS links at Tenby were an ideal place to be this Sunday afternoon (Aug 13) in beautiful weather.

What better way to spend it than playing a mixed golf competition, with a favourite format of greensome foursomes? 76 people agreed.

This popular competition opened up to non-members three years ago, and grows in popularity every year. The actual Morgan Tucker Trophy can only be won by a pair of members, but three visitors’ prizes are also given, so making it a favourite of members and visitors alike.

Nearest the pin in two was won by John and Fair Ball, whilst nearest the pin on the 12th (almost a hole in one!) was Linda Tordoff-Evans. Nine twos were recorded; Steve Williams and Avrile Rees on the 6th and 17th, Neil Gallagher and Nicky McDowell on the 12th and 17th, then on the 6th Julie Tordoff and Nigel Ayers, Anna and Keith Hubbard, Eileen and Harley Chessell, and on the 17th Dai and Penny Cope.

Visitors’ prizes were given first to Avrile Rees from Carmarthen and Steve Williams from Tenby with a magnificent 45 points; second to Moyanne Monday from St Pierre and Alan Monday from Tenby with 42 points, and third to Neil Gallagher and Nicky McDowell from St Pierre with 41 points.

Fourth prize in the members’ competition went to Andy and Diane Williams with 41 points. They were beaten on the back nine, also with 41 points, by Anna and Keith Hubbard. In second place were our Lady President Pat Fox and her grandson Philip who was over from Germany. They had a great score of 42 points.

The winners of the trophy for 2017, receiving only 4 shots, and grossing 68 with 43 points were Holly Watkins and Chris Thompson. Holly has only recently returned to golf and Heather and Mervyn were very thrilled that she and Chris won their trophy this year.

Many thanks to our President Allan Morton for presenting the prizes, to all the lovely prizes that were donated, to Mike Fox for starting the visitors, to Laura for doing all the work in the office, and helping with the raffle, to Iris and Judy for running the raffle all day, to the caterers for feeding and ‘watering’ us, to the Green Staff for having worked so hard on the course, but most of all for my husband David, who has been a general dogsbody for me all day!

The next mixed event at Tenby for members is the 125th Anniversary Greensome medal on Saturday, September 16.

Signed Wales shirts gifted to RNLI go up for auction

Published

on

FOLLOWING a winning start to the Six Nations Tournament, the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) have scored a winning try for the RNLI, gifting six signed rugby shirts to help save lives at sea.

Each rugby shirt has been signed by the full WRU squad and are accompanied by a certificate of authentication – a winning prize for any Welsh rugby fan.

To avoid a ruck for the WRU shirts the charity has placed all six signed shirts on an online auction, ensuring a fair game for all who wish to win the golden prize. The auction will be live until Wednesday, March 31, which allows plenty of time for supporters to bid for the team in red.

Each signed shirt includes Wales Captain, Mumbles RNLI supporter and the most capped international player of all time Alun Wyn Jones; as well as Louis Rees-Zammit, the Man of the Match in the nail-biting Scotland v Wales game.

Nick Evans, RNLI Fundraising and Partnership Lead said: ‘On behalf of the charity I would like to say a big thank you to the Welsh Rugby Union for donating these fantastic prizes to the RNLI. RNLI volunteers are on call 24-7 and are often called away from important events such as family celebrations – or international rugby tournaments – to respond to the pager if someone is in trouble at sea.

‘Like all charities, 2020 was a challenging year for the RNLI when all traditional fundraising had to stop – all our shops were closed, there were no collections and all events had to be cancelled. This is why we at the RNLI are so grateful to all the team at WRU for their ongoing support. The auction is now live and we would like to encourage all Wales rugby supporters to throw the RNLI a lifeline and place their bid for the winning prize.’

Five subs to be allowed for JD Cymru Premier clubs

Published

on

THE FAW’s National Leagues Board has confirmed that JD Cymru Premier clubs will be permitted to make five substitutions in matches, in accordance with the Laws of the Game, until the end of the 2020-21 top-flight season.

FIFA extended the use of the rule, which was first introduced following the COVID-19 outbreak, citing “player welfare” as part of the reason for the temporary amendment to Law 3 of the Laws of the Game.

FIFA stated that “Some competitions which resumed in 2020 may have a shorter-than-usual recovery/preparation period before the start of their next season.”

“For many competitions, the 2020/21 season will involve matches being played in a condensed period due to a delayed start and the inability to end later than usual because of major international tournaments.”

With the JD Cymru Premier set to restart on March 2, the National Leagues Board has approved the use of the rule in the JD Cymru Premier until the end of the current campaign.
