3 Counties League - Freeman Trophy 7th October 2017

Glad to say we were not held up by fog this year at Cricket St. Thomas – the weather was kind and the day ran well. Tee times started at 0800 and by the end were only 15 minutes adrift. The field of 120 players were through in actual daylight…no need for the Volvik balls I had bought for Long Sutton!…and Ian Chandler even had time for relaxed chat before the evening started, as Aaron in the pro-shop had done a sterling job on collating the results for him as they came in. Much appreciated.

On the day, Long Sutton were second with 319 points, to Cricket St. Thomas with 339. Ann McRae won the ladies longest drive. As for the year’s prizes, we collected the cup for Winners Div. 2 (so will be going up next year), and the shield for winning last winter’s Knockout. Cricket St. Thomas were second, in Div. 2, so also go up to Div 1.

Folke raised £100+ for their charity - Steve Henstridge accepted the dare to exchange outfits...Maxine to wear Steve's suit and Steve Maxine's slinky dress. Easy for Maxine, but Steve’s size 12’s would not fit into Maxine’s high heels! I had my doubts the zip would work either, but it held. Well done them!

Winter Knockout : -

The first round has to be played by 12th November. We are drawn to play Wheathill A, on a neutral course. 5 pairs needed to play betterball matchplay. A sign up sheet with details will be on the board asap.

3 Counties last Summer League match:

Cricket St. Thomas, Cannington Bears and Long Sutton have been tussling for the top positions in Div. 2 this year.  Long Sutton scored well from the beginning of the season but as many know, it is not always a good sign to score well on the 1st!  Gradually, both Cricket St. Thomas and the Bears overtook us, but we did have games in hand.  As we played our penultimate game at home on 9th September we had 66 points, Cannington Bears were finished on 69 and Cricket had finished on 82.  Our team played well that day, especially Becky Cousins, chipping in from off the green, taking the glory from Steve, and we gained  11 points, moving to 77 and claiming a definite 2nd place and promotion next year alongside Cricket St. Thomas. 

As the day dawned (thankfully) dry on Sat. 16th, we now needed just 6 points to claim first Div. 2, but there is no such thing as ‘just’ in golf.  One win and a half would be enough but the game was away on the Newton Course and we had illness and injuries amongst us, no Sandra, no Sarah and no Carole.  There had been heavy storm showers and more were forecast; how muddy would it be?   As I walked to the first tee I heard a shout go up…on the green?  No, appreciation of Tim’s trick shot via bank and bridge to safety.  Just the right amount of power and spin!   A sign that luck is on our side or that it is going to be hard work?

The 15th was a pivotal hole.  Franco and John Jeanes were out third ahead of Nigel and myself and Ray and Connie were the last pair.  As we stood looking up the hill, waiting to play the 15th, we saw Franco and John’s group shake hands on the green.  I couldn’t tell from body language which pair looked most chipper, but as they played down 16, Franco ‘s thumb went up, then, as Nigel and I played the 16th, Ray’s tic tac had me floored, so many fingers flying around…and I don’t do numbers!  I found out later that he and Connie had already won…5 and 4, what a win…thanks to Connie said Ray.  Our total score for the day was 16 points, so clear winners.  A massive thank you everyone, on the day and through the season.  We have had a lot of fun and I look forwards to next year.  Our team for the day was Tim and Caroline, Angela and Dave, Franco and John, Nigel and myself, Ray and Connie, Steve Uzzell and Sean.  

Looking forwards to next season…Div. 1 -  Sturminster Marshall, Folke, Wincanton, Cannington A, Long Sutton, Cricket St. Thomas. 

Div. 2 –Charminster, Wheathill A, Cannington Bears, Wheathill B, Yeovil, Bulbury Woods

 

The Winter Knockout Draw has been made.  We play Wheathill A.  Neutral venue and date to be arranged.

The next 3 Counties event is the Freeman Trophy Day, which is being held at Cricket St. Thomas on Sat. 8th October.  Details and sign up sheet on the noticeboard.  We need a team of 12.

3 Counties Match Report - 1st July 2017

Golf is usually a case of 'If only...'  Well our 1st July match was a massive 'if only'. If only I had remembered Angela and Dave were in Wales that day....if only I had struck their names off the sign up sheet.....if only I had been on Facebook, I would have seen!!  But there you go. There's a first for everything and I dont want that embarrassment repeated. With 10 playes, it meant in matches 5 and 6, Sandra and Sean had to play as singletons. Losses there were - not unexpected - but from the other 4 matches, we only secured 2 points, thanks to Rod and Sylvie who halved their game. We always knew it would be a tough day and I was actually looking forwards to it...I always like playing at Cricket...but I could never have imagined how touch a day it would prove to be. Thank you to all the team who tried so hard to bring the points in...Caroline and Nigel, Steve and Ann and Ray - who was not feeling well. Looking forwards, we have our next match away at Cannington on Staurday 15th July, first tee 11.00. We are up for the challenge! Look out for the sign up sheet in the corridor and sign up if you would like to play. League table follows...

3 Counties Report - Long Sutton v Cricket St. Thomas 7.5.17

3 Counties Report - Long Sutton v Cricket St. Thomas 7.5.17 – Despite my (actually) being early at the Club to sort the match, turmoil before the off, as Cricket were only able to field 10 players, instead of 10 for the match and 2 for the Reserve Trophy.  Time was slipping by fast with worry over how to interpret the League’s Rule 5.  Turns out it is a muddled way of saying that at least one player has to be in the Trophy game, unless there are only five players and as the League has now cancelled aggregate order, a single player can go in any slot…so we made the right decision, more by luck than judgement: a singleton went off first and a singleton in the Trophy slot, but then Denise back with card querying shots given.  Angela back with card querying shots given.  From Ray “I don’t know why you give Gill the job of working out shots with her number ability.”  Patience…  We got there in the end with just a few more grey hairs for me.  Both teams enjoyed the course, the sun and the carvery meal and Long Sutton came out well in the results with a 4:1 win, gaining 14 points for the match and the Trophy points, versus Cricket St. Thomas’s 4.  Thank you team!  Tim, Nigel, John Thomas and John Pearson, Angela and Dave, Denise and Richard, Sandra and Sean, Ray and myself.

Our next match will be on Saturday, 20th May at Wheathill.  First tee 11.00.
