Brown and Hasenson reach final of Online Knockout

The semi-finals of the Online Knockout competition have taken place, with the Brown and Hasenson teams progressing to the final.

The team of Peter Hasenson (Captain), Steve Eginton, Barry Myers and David Sherman will take on the team of Fiona Brown (Captain), Tommy Garvey, Hugh McGann and Susan Stockdale.

The event was a trial in 2013 with a view to introducing an online option for some tournaments. The feedback has proven positive and an online option will therefore be available for some rounds of the Seniors Knock-Out for the Gerard Faulkner Salver in 2014.
