Autumn Pairs finalists decided at Roe Park Golf Club thumbnailDerek Nicholl and Alan Rankin were named finalists in the Roe Park Autumn Pairs competition, sponsored by DJ Wes Discos.

ROE Park had one of its busiest ever winter weeks recently as the dry mild weather provided fantastic course conditions which led to an influx of golfers turning out.
The start of the Turkey & Bottle competitions and the final week of the Autumn Pairs also helped to draw the crowds.
The Autumn Pairs saw at least six pairs fighting for the top four places to qualify for the play-off finals next week and a chance of winning some amazing prizes provided by sponsor DJ Wes Disco's.
Darren McVeigh and Andy Dunn qualified in first position with Alex Steele and Keith Burns qualifying in second place. Ever present when it comes to pairs competitions were the deadly duo of Derek Nicholl and Alan Rankin who qualified in third and will be a tough pair to beat.
The battle for the fourth and final qualifying place went right down to the wire as John Robson and Sammy Murphy fought it out with Derek Powell and Johnny Forsythe. John and Sammy sneaked through on count back and will now play Darren and Andy. Alex & Keith will play Derek and Alan in the other semi-final.
