The Jack O’Sullivan team bowed out of the competition at the hands of Ballymote on Thursday last on a scoreline of 3 matches to 2. 
The Junior Cup team lead by Gary Carty will compete in the Junior Cup in Carrick on Shannon this upcoming weekend. It is a five man team played off scratch, and no player with a handicap of less than 5 in the previous year may compete. The team will attempt to qualify from Saturday’s strokeplay, for Sunday’s matchplay stage. 
In news related to this, the team captain managed to lead home a field of many of the competitors last Sunday in Carrick’s Junior Scatch Cup. Well done to other Boyle players – Brendan Gaffney, Sean Heslin & Charlie O’Donnell who also placed highly.
