The Dunfanaghy Junior Boys closed their season out in style on Sunday with a fantastic victory over Gweedore in the final of the Donegal Youth Matchplay. On a blustery, difficult day for golf at Letterkenny the pairings of Luke Kelly and Darcy Hogg, Conor Hanna and James T Sweeney, and Carlos O’Reilly and Tom McClintock produced some great golf to beat a talented Gweedore team. The individual games ebbed and flowed, with no clear outcomes guaranteed until the latter stages giving team captain Paul a few nervous moments! The matchplay experience that the boys have gained over the past few seasons proved vital as they closed strongly to overcome the spirited Gweedore team and bring the County Championship back to Dunfanaghy.
The players, and both clubs, can be incredibly proud of how well they represented themselves and of the sportsmanship on display. Well done to all the boys!
