Somerset Bowl latest result
On a swelteringly hot day the Long Sutton team took on a strong team from Vivary Park at Cricket St Thomas in the next round of the Somerset Bowl. First out for us was Roy Parmiter and Martin Hawkins, unfortunately for them the pair they played were on form and they lost. Next up were Steve Southgate and Norman Banfield, they fought hard but also lost. So with the match posed at 2-0 to Vivary we turned our attention to the last 3 matches - Gary French and Kevin Purdy won handsomely and got us back to 2-1, next up were Richard Bartin and Hughie McQuire, holes trading hands through the back nine but they ground out a result leaving the match squared up at 2-2. So down to the final pair, Jamie Brodie and Chris Binding. Through 10 they were a couple up, after 15 all square and the Vivary pair were battling hard, to the par 16th, nerves jangling from the whole team watching on, Chris cool as you like slots a putt for a 2 and walked to the 17th tee 1 up 2 to play, he then smashed a drive just short of the green as cool as you like! The resulting 4 won the hole and took us forward to the next round! Well done team, a potential fixture against Orchardleigh looms depending on their result – onwards and upwards.
