Belvedere Trophy

West Waterford gained a share of the spoils at Gold Coast on Monday with a 2.5 to 2.5 result against Gold Coast.  We now progress to the next round by virtue of our win in the first leg played at West Waterford.  As always this proved to be a sporting contest and we thank Gold Coast for their hospitality on the day.  We now go on to another local derby vs Dungarvan in the next round with the first leg due to be played in Dungarvan within the coming week. Panel members will be contacted as soon as we have a definite date for the first leg. The second leg will be played at West Waterford the following week.
