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.
