Derek Cantley will meet Alan Thompson in Saturdays Championship Final.
Derek, who won this event in 2005 overcame the five-times Champion Neil Donaldson in tonight's semi-final and Alan Thompson, looking for his first Lochend Championship, was too strong for Johan Svard. Both finalists will be high in confidence after winning their semi-finals at the 15th.
In the B Section both semi-finals went the distance as, top qualifier, Billy Richardson and Alex Ferguson both won took the important wins at 18th green over Derek Ramsay and Richard Budge respectively.
And the C Section Final will be contested by Alex Nisbet and Alex Young who were both given tough opposition from James Markey and Eddie Paul.
So all the finalists are now known (Ladies Championship Details here) we hope as many of our members can make it to the club on Saturday to support the finalists and enjoy the after-golf festivities.

27th July
The 80th Lochend Championship kicked off tonight with a few surprise results as three former Champions went out after tonight's first round matches.
5-times Champion Stuart Turner almost got a reprieve when he won the 18th to level his match with Colin Golder, however Colin saw out the match at the first extra hole. Twice Champion Duncan Ireland also came a cropper at the first extra hole having been 1-up with a couple of outside chances to clinch the match at the 17th and 18th.
Duncan's drive at the extra hole disappeared (and I really mean just vanished) in the vicinity of bushes down the right never to be seen again. Brian Coyle's drive was straight down the fairway so after a bit of ball hunting Duncan decided that was it and conceded the match and Brian gained a just reward for hanging in there.
Arguably the surprise of the night was defending Champion James Tetlow crashing out to Alan Thompson. Alan was always expected to make it tough for the reigning Champ but no one would have predicted such an emphatic 5 and 3 win.
One former Champion who did progress was 5-time winner Neil Donaldson, who began his quest to be only the second person ever to win a 6th Championship with a 3 & 2 win tonight over Paul Edwards. Neil now faces a re-run of last years quarter final when he meets Robert Binnie who secured a 3 & 2 win over David Graham.
Derek Cantley enjoyed a 2 & 1 win over Jim McIntyre and will next play Colin Colder, Johan Svard moves on to play Brian Coyle after his emphatic win over Ricky Richardson. And Steven Harper won his tie with Dean Robertson 3 & 1 win and will now play Alan Thompson in Friday's Quarter Finals.
