THE second round of group matches took place in the Bob McCartin 6-Red Cup this week and two teams are safely through to the knockout stages.
Edgefold Club scored a crushing 7-0 success over Bolehill Institute No 2 which gave them 11 points from two games and puts them in an unassailable position in Group C.
In Group B, Belper Strutt Club No 2 did enough in their 4-3 defeat to Marehay to ensure their qualification too as well as fielding seven players on the night which is surely a record in the Darley Dale and District League’s history.
Group A remains tightly knit as Matlock Golf Club edged out Bolehill No 1 4-3 with Chris Drabble notching a 24 break and Gladiators defeating Matlock Club 5-2 with Dwayne Martin doing likewise both in his singles and scotch doubles match (with Vinnie Dennis).
