3 Counties End of Season
Saturday, 19th September was a beautiful day…clear, blue sky, autumn colours and not a sound as each of the 3 Counties pairs, Wincanton and Long Sutton teed off. Usually, the banter flows: not this Saturday. The silence was worthy of the Ryder Cup. This was a critical match. Wincanton could not win the division, but they could peg us back to a draw. I need not have worried. The team won 4 games to 1 and on Saturday, 10th October, Freeman Trophy Day at Mendip Spring, we received the Division One Winners Cup for the first time! Well done Long Sutton. As you can see from the photo, we won well through the year…Winners Winter Knockout, (again for the first time), Second in the Winter Salva, Winners Div. 1 Summer League, Runners Up Joe Harring Trophy and Sandra Ford won the Captains’ Cup. On the day, Nigel Brighouse was our Best in Team and Sarah Uzzell won the Ladies Longest Drive. A good day at the end of a good year. Thank you to everyone for your efforts and team spirit throughout the year…not only did you bring home trophies, you added drama, humour and made it downright fun. Keep it up!
I hope I have not missed anyone out. My thanks go to Angela and Dave Baker, Steve and Sarah Uzzell, Steve Stopforth, John Jeanes, Nigel Brighouse, John and Pat Whitehead, Ray, Tim, Rupert and Henry Edwards, Judith Fox, Sandra Basford, Sean Monaghan, Ann and Mike McRae, Sylvie Coache, Rod Tucker, Luke and Adrian Nutland, Jony Tulk, Tyler, Mike Poole, Carole Paterson, Sandra Ford, Haydn Gibson, John English, Sam Clarke, Frank Penny, Nick Dennis, John Paterson, Kev Purdy, Richard and Angela Body, Rich Bartin, and last, but not least, Graham Holloway!
