2010 Country Week Champions

Well done to the 2010 Country Week Squad, who successfully defended the Country Week Shield in Melbourne last week.  Our squad who also consisted of 5 junior caddies from our development squad who were fantastic in lending support to the players all week and it is hoped that these juniors will form the nucleus for future success in Melb.

The team from back to front, left to right:

Back Row (Youth): Aaron Coates (R/River), Tim Watson (Shep), Luke Petherick (Moor), Ash Blake (Shep), Jeremy Rath (Toc), Ash Umbers (R/River)

Front Row (Experience): Ben Docking (R/River), Geoff Devine (Shep), Terry Vogel - Capt (C/Barooga), James Zappelli (C/Barooga), Daniel Adem (Shep), Andrew Storer (Numurkah)

A big thanks to team manager Wayne Gould for not only driving the bus but also for his inspirational quotes which he may argue were vital to the overall performance of the team.  Mike McGregor, our team coach from Tocumwal GC as is always the case leant both advice and encouragement  at country week but also to he, his staff and the Tocumwal GC for the use of their facilities for team practices leading up to the event. 

Also to Peter Fraser who as always wears his heart on his sleeve for the GV.  He's often spotted close up and personal on many greens trying to physc out the opposition.  His efforts are much appreciated.

And lastly it is possible that we may lose a couple of members to the pro ranks later in the year so from a GV perspective we would like to wish those players all the very best for the future and remind them that if all else fails they are always welcome back to the team.

Yours in golfing,
Geoff Devine
