Loughrea take AIG Junior Cup in Connacht

​​Disappointment on the Double for Galway Bay

  • 13 August 2017

​Loughrea Golf Club put in a stellar performance to never really give Galway Bay a chance to get a foot hold in the AIG Junior Cup final at the beautiful Galway Bay Golf Resort.

Perhaps it was nerves in front of a large and very appreciative home gallery but some untidy play from the home side saw them surrender leads in four of the five matches early on.

Loughrea used their experience of the 2015 Final defeat to Westport as a great motivator and never took the foot off the gas eventually running out 3.5/1.5 winners following a strong rally from Galway Bay on the back 9.
