Seniors Summer Matches

Each year the D.G. seniors play a summer program of about 30 mid week home and away interclub matches.
Some of these matches are included in the Three Counties Seniors” Summer League and you can track our progress below. We play some great senior teams at some excellent clubs and win lose or draw ( though we quite like to win!) everyone has a good time! We are the current League Champions.
All seniors are very welcome to play in our interclub matches but there are a few things that you need to do;

    1. You must to be 55 years of age or older to qualify for seniors matches.

    2. You must have an active handicap. If it’s not active then get some cards in ASAP!
    3. You’ll need to buy some very smart seniors kit (a red seniors shirt, black trousers and black seniors sweater or pullover ). Contact Ian
    4. You’ll need to give Ian your email address so that he can keep you updated.
    5. Finally you’ll need to log on to google docs and mark up your availability on the seniors match availability chart.
      If you want to make yourself available for the summer matches, use google sheets link here and use the drop down menu in each match you would like to play in. When you use an iPad for this you need to install the “sheets” app in order to be able to update your availability.
      If you are not included in the list of players, contact the seniors captain.You can follow the team’s fortunes here:
