Kukerin Dumbleyung Football Club
The Upper Great Southern Football League Annual Dinner and Leo Graham Medal Vote Count was held at Stubbs Park in Dumbleyung on Monday August 20 with over 100 people attending the event. Well done to all award winners though in particular the following Kukerin Dumbleyung club members! Well done to Adam Gray and Nathan Ditchburn who both finished in third place/12 votes for the Life Member’s Medal 2018 (B Grade).
Further congratulations to Sam Pearce and the Executive Committee of the Kukerin Dumbleyung Football Club who were awarded the Lorraine Pillage memorial Award ‘Best Administered Club’.
This year also saw two new life members to the Upper Great Southern Football League, one of which included our very own Kukerin Dumbleyung member, Graeme (Spock) Taylor. Graeme was awarded his life member badge from a fellow KDFC life member, Gordon Davidson. A very deserving award, congratulations Spock!

Back in form player and desperately needing a good score, which he did, to stay in the No 1 position for the Championships and the winner of the men's comp was Eric Gossage with a72 nett/85 gross. Scribe didn't really hear any stories about the Jurien Bay Sand Greens, obviously what goes on stays buried up there, or lost in the bush! Runner-up on a countback from Garry Bateup, was Dave Wall 73 nett/89 gross who had kindly picked up the meat packs from Wagin. It seems 1 good turn wins a meat pack and the Gross was won by Paul Ward 94. Novelties were won by Dave Wall, Eric Gossage, Ricky Mott and Sharlene Powell.
Quote of the year: "If you girls would just occasionally play to your handicap, you'd beat me every time". Yes you guessed it, may as well call her the Mighty Quinn, nearly unbeatable this year. Well done to ladies’ winner Liz Dare with a 76 nett/114 gross, runner-up Tamara Bartram - whose practice made not one ounce of difference and an even worse score that the last week with 80 nett/99 gross. The Gross was won by Davina Gossage, who did show some promise for things to come, taking her putter home was the highlight last week -but needed to practice with some balls to help improve. Also we girls are desperately trying to play just around our handicaps, alas to no avail.
Saturday, 25 August is the 1st and 2nd Elimination Rounds please see below for hit off times:
No 1 Eric Gossage v No 8 Daniel McDougall at 8.30am
No 2 Paul Ward v No 7 Ricky Mott at 8.37am
No 3 Lee Smith v No 6 Garry Bateup at 8.44am
No 4 Dave Wall v No 5 Jamie Dare at 8.51am.
The two eliminations will commence after lunch (around 12.30pm) and for those not left in the competition, will play after championship players have hit off.
Ladies will play at 12.30pm and order will be as follows:
No 1 Tamara Bartram v No 4 Liz Dare at 12.30pm
No 2 Sharlene Powell v No 3 Davina Gossage at 12.37pm.
The B Grade will be a final between No 1 Bob Hannah and No 2 Darry Gaull on the 8 September.
If you are unable to play, please ring your player direct or any queries please ring the Captains. Good luck to everyone and good golfing!
There will be a busy bee this Thursday 23 August (tomorrow) at 2.00pm to ready the course for the mid-week golf day on the following Thursday August 30, which you need to get your names to the captains ASAP.
