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.
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.
This was to be our last friendly with G & S The weather was fine, apart from one shower, course in great condition, catering excellent. After the first 3 games it looked like a win in the offing for DG, but then never count your chickens before…, we lost 3½ 2½. However I am delighted to announce that over 2 legs we won 7½ 4½, so well done Seniors.
The Seniors were playing Freshwater (IOW) for the Brian Whelan Trophy on a 2-leg basis. DG won away 3½ to 2½ and today we beat Freshwater 4½ to ½ (only 5 matches for the eagle-eyed), thus retaining the trophy. The home result belies a close set of matches with one match won 2 up and another 1 up. It was a pleasure watching Kevin Walker get into his stride on the back nine, scoring a birdie on the 11th and the 13th, altogether a most enjoyable day, despite the forecast being wrong yet again.
