Cas­tle Dou­glas ladies go top in league race

The Galloway News - - READER TRAVEL -

Both the Dum­fries and Gal­loway ladies and gents dou­bles leagues have reached the half way point of the sea­son and Cas­tle Dou­glas ladies are look­ing good to re­tain their ti­tle.

The Cas­tle Dou­glas ladies team com­pris­ing Su­san Nu­gent, Char­lotte Car­son, Kirstin Han­nay, Jane Hainey and Lind­say Kennedy are in top po­si­tion with seven points from four matches, only drop­ping one point in an away match to Dal­beat­tie ladies.

This week, the Cas­tle Dou­glas ladies have a dou­ble header, with a home match against Kirkcudbright fol­lowed by a cru­cial home tie against Dal­beat­tie.

In the gents league, Cas­tle Dou­glas men are in third place, but once again Dum­fries A team are look­ing un­stop­pable in their quest to win the league yet again, with Dum­fries putting out five men’s teams in leagues this year whilst other clubs strug­gle to get one team out ev­ery Wed­nes­day evening.

The Cas­tle Dou­glas gents team in 2018 has been se­lected from Ge­off Legg, Colin Kennedy, Bruce Todd, Rab Pea­cock and Derek Wil­liamson and they have been en­joy­ing their matches.

But they do not ex­pect to be chal­leng­ing this year against the very strong Dum­fries top team, al­though they very nearly got a draw when play­ing them away at Nun­holm ear­lier in the sea­son.

In the gents B league, last year’s rel­e­gated team, Kirkcudbright are in the lead­ing po­si­tion and have to see off the chal­lenge of new­com­ers, An­nan (Seaforth) to gain pro­mo­tion back to the top flight.
