Just three players better par at rain-hit Enmore Park

first_img15 May 2013 Just three players better par at rain-hit Enmore Park Three players, two from Kent, shared top spot on two-under-par 69 at the conclusion of a rain-plagued Brabazon Trophy Southern Qualifier at Enmore Park in Somerset. Bobby Twiner and Billy Britton from Kent were joined by Hampshire-based Edward Holland as the leaders of the 30 qualifiers. Holland, from the Hartley Whitney club, might have led on his own after covering the front nine in 30 strokes with five birdies. But he ran up five bogeys on the homeward stretch, countered by two more birdies. Britton, a member of Pedham Place in Kent, also showed good form on the outward half, turning in 32 with three birdies. But again the back nine proved a problem with dropped shots at the 12th and 14th although he managed a birdie at 16 in a homeward 37. The London Club’s Twiner looked to be heading for a level-par 71 but birdies at the 16th and 18th saw him join the Kentish pair in top spot. The trio were the only players to better par on a day of continual rain, which kept the greens staff busy, finishing two strokes ahead of the rest of the field. The leading 30 players on 73 or better qualified for the Brabazon Trophy at Formby next month with Jeremy Larcombe (Burnham & Berrow) named as a reserve. Among others to qualify were former England international John Kemp on 71, boy cap Bobby Keeble on 72, and Jimmy Mullen, beaten in a playoff for the Bernard Darwin Salver earlier this year, with 73. The Northern Qualifier will take place at Pleasington Golf Club in Blackburn next Tuesday when another 30 players will qualify.last_img read more

Worst-ever October overcrowding figures recorded at LUH

first_imgLetterkenny University Hospital has recorded its highest ever overcrowding figures in the month of October since records began in 2006.There were not enough beds for 693 patients attending the Emergency Department in LUH this month. The figure is up 21% from last year’s October overcrowding record of 572 patients in Letterkenny.Letterkenny was the fifth most overcrowded hospital in Ireland this month. It also recorded the fourth highest trolley count today (Thursday), with 44 patients without beds. The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation is warning that the overcrowding crisis will worsen this winter if the recruitment ban in the HSE is not lifted.INMO General Secretary, Phil Ní Sheaghdha, said: “The message from the frontline is clear: patients are being put at grave risk.“There is no doubt that this situation will worsen as winter bites, unless staffing becomes a top priority for the government. Patients are paying the price for the HSE’s “go slow” recruitment freeze, which leaves many posts unfilled.“I have written to the HSE to warn that their recruitment pause is putting lives at risk. Advertisement “We need to be encouraging more nurses and midwives into our system. Instead, we are making an already bureaucratic recruitment process even more difficult. In many cases, we’re slamming the door on those who want to work in our public health system.”Worst-ever October overcrowding figures recorded at LUH was last modified: November 1st, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:HSEinmoLetterkenny University Hospitalovercrowdinglast_img read more

Dave Smith makes NSW State Cup debut

first_imgThe NRL-TFA strategic alliance states that there is ‘a place on the field for everyone’ and that was definitely the case at the 2014 New South Wales State Cup. In Port Macquarie for the TFA Annual General Meeting, NRL Chief Executive Officer and TFA Board Member, Dave Smith was even able to make his State Cup debut on Saturday afternoon for the Jerrabomberra Men’s 40’s. Smith joined TFA Chief Executive Officer, Colm Maguire and TFA General Manager – Marketing, Communications and Partnerships, Julian Buckmaster, as well as Rugby League great, Adrian Lam, in in the Jerrabomberra Storm team for their final game of the day against the Manly Sea Eagles. Smith said he ‘enjoyed it and felt pretty exhausted’ following the game. “It’s a great team, there’s some real talent out there and it was a tough game. We lost 4-2 but we gave it our best and I thought the boys played fantastically well. It’s a fast game, there’s lots of skill required,” Smith said. Following the AGM, Smith toured the fields and also ran into Penrith Panthers’ star, Matt Moylan who is playing for the Panthers’ Men’s Open team at the State Cup. Smith said it was a fantastic day. “I just saw Matty before I came on the field, he was probably watching me to get one or two tips. It’s great, a lot of NRL players have come through the Touch system and anyone that saw Shaun Johnson at the Four Nations final can see how brilliant Touch players are. “The skill levels are one thing but just the sheer enjoyment of watching people around the place be a part of it has been great. I’m glad I stayed the whole afternoon and I’m really privileged the boys gave me a bit of a run, I let them down a bit but it was good fun. It’s been a good experience, Touch is a great game.”And will he take to the field again?“100 percent, it’s been fantastic, I’ve really had a good day.”Related LinksSmith makes SC debutlast_img read more
