LOVE FEST CONTINUES AT 2019 MATCH PLAY CHAMPIONSHIP

November 24, 2019.  Club President Davidson Love III created history today when he became the first player in 31 years to claim the club's coveted calendar year golf majors clean sweep.

Davidson Love III

A hot favourite entering the Championship Match, Love (picture supplied by ESG&EC Media) gradually wriggled free from the closer than expected challenge to defeat a tenacious Danny White Shark 4 & 3.

As well as the unprecedented calendar double, he now has an imposing 5-0 record in championship matches to add to his 3 World Series titles in the past 6 years.  There's a lot to be said for an early retirement and a new set of metal drivers.

NEWTOWN JETS 2019 NRL STATE CHAMPIONS

Billy Magoulias

October 6, 2019.  Another week, another chip from his own side of halfway, another last minute miracle from the Jets magician Billy Magoulias (pictured).

This time it was Jackson Ferris on hand to gather the bouncing ball and race away to score under the posts as the full-time siren sounded to give the Jets an 18-16 lead over Queensland's Burleigh Bears.

Retiring player Greg Eastwood kicked the conversion and Newtown cult hero and front-rower Toby Rudolf was named player of the match.  The NSWRL website has a 4 minute highlights package showcasing more Billy Magoulias magic

NEWTOWN JETS 2019 CANTERBURY CUP PREMIERS

Will Kennedy

September 29, 2019.  It took until the 8th minute of extra time for the Newtown Jets to kill off Parramatta's feeder side Wentworthville 20-15 in the 2019 Canterbury Cup Grand Final and cap off another great season for coach Greg Matterson and the team.

The NSWRL website has a 4 minute Grand Final highlights package showcasing some Billy Magoulias magic and the absolute class of man of the match Will Kennedy (pictured) who scored the match winning try.

RESULTS FOR FATCAT'S NRL TIPPING COMPETITION

September 8, 2019.  It came down to the last game of the season to determine the outcome in Fatcat's annual NRL Tipping Competition, "A Competition With A Difference".  Charbel Hatem's epic 19 point final round saw him jump from 8th place to equal first with Peter Escott and they split $3,500.

Marc Taylor finished 3rd ($1,000) 3 points behind the winning duo and 1 point ahead of BJ Malone and last year's winner Chris Ryan ($500 each).

Rounds 17-25 segment winners were Shaun Froggatt (overall 135pts) and Marc Taylor (handicap 53pts).  The inaugural Gilling Legacy "winner" was Annie Mustow who redeemed her $80 entry fee after a thoroughly underwhelming debut season.

The 6 tipsters who gained entry - through a combination of skill and good fortune - to the competition's $250 lucky door prize, The Finals Series, are Charbel Hatem, Peter Escott, Mark Young, Michael Blaser, Connie Spence and John Hermsen.

VALE GAZ PHILLIPS

August 5, 2019.  The club received news this morning of the sudden death of UK-based tipster and past ESG&EC member Gary Phillips.  Gaz suffered a heart attack during a social cricket match and was unable to be revived.

Our deepest condolences to Tracy and Liam on the loss of a loving husband and father and to all his family and friends.

Vale Gaz - a great friend to many on these shores.

LOVE CONQUERS ALL

May 17, 2019.  After a near 25 year drought, Club President Davidson Love III (picture supplied by ESG&EC Media) has now strung together 3 World Series of Golf victories (2013, 2014 and 2019) in his past 6 starts.

Davidson Love III

Critics of the Love regime have suggested when you control the schedule, the events, handicaps, playing partners, finances and the weather - it couldn't have been better - you should own the tournament and it's becoming quite obvious the President does.

Love finished on 6pts with wins in Monday's teams match play (paired with Notah Kelly) and Tuesday's stableford aggregate (partnered with Hunter Meehan) and seconds in the individual stableford (29pts) and stroke events (net 82).

Shire resident Hunter Meehan showed a welcome return to form with only his second podium finish in the past 15 starts.  Meehan's results were a 2 & 1 loss in the teams match play (Rich Kent), a win in the stableford aggreagte (Love), a fourth and fifth in the individual events to finish on 13pts.

Brookvale Oval NRL interchange official Peard Fulke rounded out the placings on 16pts after a win in the teams match play (Romero), a fourth in the stableford aggregate (Strange), and a third and eighth in the individual events.
