James wins silver in Newcastle games

Our local organ transplant athlete James Nolan won a silver medal today at the British Transplant Games in Newcastle, writes Brian Byrne.

Saying he is 'chuffed' about the achievement, he noted that it was the first 18 holes he had played in nearly a year and the first since he had got a new hip.

"Graham Wylie's Close House in Newcastle was an amazing venue and we were incredibly well looked after," he told the Diary today. "It was also a nice way to celebrate the week of the 28th anniversary of my transplant — all thanks to my sister Catherine."
