STRUTT AND BOLEHILL 1 COME THROUGH STERN TESTS

IAN BIRKS was unbeaten in singles and doubles for BOLEHILL No 1
BELPER STRUTT CLUB and Bolehill Institute No 1 team will clash  in the final of the Bob McCartin Six Red Cup after they saw off Bolehill No 2 and Matlock Golf Club in very competitive semi final contests.
Les Mooney, recent Christmas shootout winner, continued his impressive run of form by taking green to pink to seal the opener for the golfers and Ian McKay, buoyed  from a singles victory prior to the team event, soon made it 2-0.
Colin Marchington  pulled one back however and Ian Birks took a black ball decider to level before Graham Jones and McKay did likewise in the pairs to put the hosts 3-2 ahead again.
Birks teamed up with Andrew Brough to equalise again and then paired with Ricki Slack took the deciding leg in good style for a thrilling 4-3 win.

Strutt Club took two very tight opening frames through Justin Weller and Paul Jarrett though Kevin Munnelly and Mick Bunting tied proceedings at 2-2.
But the home side took the three remaining scotch doubles legs for a 5-2 success and extend their great run of results this season.

Bob McCartin Six Red Cup semi finals: Matlock Golf Club 3, Bolehill Institute No 1 4; Belper Strutt Club 5, Bolehill Institute No 2 2.
Breaks: R Muxlow 35,25,24; J Smith 25; I McKay 24;  C Marchington 22; A Haggarty 21.
