Winter League Team 2018

The Winter League became the Summer League as the Senior Golf team of David Keery, Darcy Hogg, Marco Deane and Luke Kelly travelled to Massereene Golf Club last week. The team played CGS in the semi-final winning 3-1. They progressed to play BRA in the final. The match was delicately poised with RBAI holding a 2-1 lead and Marco Deane on the course 1 down after 14 holes. Marco then turned up in his match winning the next three holes to secure victory by a score of 3-1.


Date and time of the Schools Cup semi-final are outlined below:

1st XI v Limavady Grammar School- away at their school grounds.

Monday 4th June. 1.30pm start. 35 overs per side.

All support very much welcomed!

Congratulations to Mark Gleghorne, a past-pupil of RBAI, who recently won a bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games in Queensland, Australia in early April 2018.

Mark is a key member of the English hockey squad that took part in the competition. In the group stages of the competition Mark scored two of his team's goals in a 7-0 win over Malyasia, and one goal in a 2-2 draw with Pakistan. Other group matches saw the team record a 3-2 victory over Wales and a 4-3 defeat at the hands of India.

Having finished second in their group, the English team then took on hosts Australia in the semi-final. A very close match, watched by a large and vociferous crowd, resulted in a 2-1 win for Australia. This result left Mark's England team playing India in the bronze medal match : a contest that England won by 2 goals to 1.

We were very fortunate this week to have the world famous Barbarians use our facilities at Osborne and College square in preparation for their match with Ulster. International super stars like Theiry Dusatoir, Robbie Fruean, Chris Madoe, Ian Madigan and Joe Tikori all trained and signed autographs.
