A match report from Team Manager Austin Gill – ‘All good things come to an end and sadly the Uden Cup Teams great run came to the end on Sunday 29th last.
Playing Clontarf GC in the Semi Finals with 3 matches away and two at home the team were beaten 3-2. The Uden team were the last team standing representing the Men’s Club in 2018.

The last match went to the 18th in Skerries after a great fight back from 3 down after 10 holes to get back to 1 up playing 17th.

Team Manager Austin Gill and Assistant Manager Willie Prendergast wish to thank their panel for their commitment and dedication over the last six months. A great team spirit prevailed with everybody giving 100% no matter what was asked of them. The experience that the panel got , most of them representing Skerries GC and wearing the Maroon and Black for the first time augurs well for future inter club campaigns.

The Manager and Team wish to thank Captain Dominic, Vice-Captain Tom and President Celly for their support at all matches. It was especially encouraging to see the numbers of members that turned out last Sunday to support the team in Skerries, it was greatly appreciated.

Roll on 2019!’
