The quarter-finals of the Winter League were played in fine conditions at Greetham Valley last weekend.

The Sargood family seem to be intent on making it a family occasion. The father and son team of Darren and Joe Sargood won through 2 and 1 against Anthony Mousley and Jamie Herbert, while Harry Sargood, playing with his grandfather Tom McGrath, won on the 19th hole against Dave Morgan and Ian Bain.

In the other matches, Matt Williams and Bryan Birchall defeated Alan Bennett and Steff Dutton 5 and 3, while Peter Dickinson and Martin Thwaites beat Ian Copley and Steve Anderson 2 and 1.

The semi-final draw has kept the Sargood pairs apart based on their league positions.

* Sam McCall won Greetham’s first medal competition of the year on the Lakes course on Saturday.

More than 100 entrants took to the tees with 17-handicapper McCall putting together a winning score of nett 64.

Ken McCann (nett 66) scored three birdies in his round to take second place on countback from Chris Tapsell whose visit to the water on the last hole created a triple bogey and spoiled his chances.

Bill Guest completed the top four on nett 67.
