(Well they won the match anyway – Ed)
Our aged heroes travelled to M’boro on Thursday in the fog, mist and rain to play a very strong M’boro team in the GJ winter league and for the very first time in winter league history drove back happy and victorious.
Remarkably the rain stopped as the match began and more remarkable was the great performance from our seniors. The final score being M’boro 1.5 and DG 2.5.
A great result – well done team!
The Seniors had a great result yesterday, beating Goring and Streatley 3½:½ in the 3rd place play off of the M4 League Summer Knockout.
All teams got on the scoresheet in an excellent and hard fought match at Richings Park G.C.
The victorious team were;- Chris Tobin(c) and John Rance: Ian Gaskell and Andy Madeley: Tom Reseigh and Chris Armitage: Alan Clark and Peter Darwin. Well done guys!
Congratulations also to West Middx the overall winners who beat Stockley Park in the final.
Our aged heroes opened their campaign for the 2017 Graham Jeffries Winter League with an impressive display at home against Wrag Barn. In bright autumn sunshine the golf was equally dazzling resulting in a fine win by 3 and a half to a half.
A long way to go – but a good start. Well done team – ED.
The Seniors played their first match in the M4 Seniors Winter League today in glorious sunshine at Mapledurham.
Unfortunately, although all our players played well, it seems the opposition just played out of their skins so we lost 3:1!
Well done to Andy Madeley and Dave Lawson who won their match. Commiseration to Tim Brunsden and Graeme Hartwell for losing on the, par 3, last to a birdie from off the green.
The nearest the pin was won by Chris Tobin. Didn’t make the putt!
The Seniors played the Ladies in the end of season fixture today. It was a very close run thing but the Seniors finally prevailed 3:2.
With prizes supplied by the team captains, congratulations to Gill Lane who won the Ladies nearest the pin and Chris Tobin won the Seniors’ nearest the pin. I am drinking the bottle of ale whilst typing this!
So the Seniors retain the Claret Jug but most importantly it was good fun and played in a great spirit. Well done to all.
