At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall.

However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic.

The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.


We value our content and access to our full site is only available on subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device In addition your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

Frost slightly delayed the start of Dunaverty Golf Club’s Mersey Police Cup competition but the sun soon shone, resulting in a bright breezy day last Saturday.

John Docherty, playing in the first group, had a fine round of 72 to give him a leading nett score of 64 but in the following group he was displaced by Ryan Deans who produced the best scratch round of the day with a 69. Playing off a nine handicap, this gave Ryan the winning nett score of 59.

Sandy Watson proved once again that age is no barrier to good golf and took the runner-up spot with a nett 62.

Worthy of a mention was 13-year-old Jake MacMillan who finished in seventh place with a nett 66. He will no doubt be one to watch in the future.

Result: 1 Ryan Deans 68-9=59; 2 Sandy Watson 73-11=62; 3 John Docherty 72-8=64; 4 Robert Coffield 74-9=65 (bih); 5 Alan Goddard 81-16=65; 6 Lee Matheison 72-6=66 (bih).
