Ahipara 2023 – Falcons

Under new leadership, the Ahipara Falcons stormed home to beat the Magpies by one point in a tense finish, winning the Fraser Moors Memorial Trophy for only the Fourth, Third second time, and in doing so kept the ghost of Fraser Moors at bay from their sleep for a few more years.

Bolstered by the return of Mark “Fair suck of the sav” Lawless and local Ahipara player Donald “Everyone is tight for me” Sure, the Falcons won 7 of their 10 singles matches on day two to keep the Magpies at bay, but only just. 

It took a magnificent effort from 2005 champion Dr. Zooce – who hadn’t played any golf whatsoever during the previous twelve months (compared to the Magpie average of 86 rounds) to beat the best player on the Woodpecker in Steve Humperdinck, making the victory all the more sweeter being in Fraser Moors territory – “the Kingdom of the North”.

Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
