Somerset Bowl Quarter Final – the Lads go Marching on!!!

Somerset Bowl Quarter Final – the Lads go Marching on!!!


Well what can I say! I’m extremely proud of the chaps that turned out on a wet and windy Sunday afternoon at Mendip Spring to compete against Fosseway for a right to face Bath in the Semi Final. Myself and Nick Northey were locked in a battle and 2 down after 11 holes with no more shots to give away, we won 3 on the spin and made a birdie at 16 to be 2 up with 2 to play and closed out our match 3 & 1. News filtered around thanks to our on course man in the know (J Williams), Gary and Kev maintained their dominance in foursomes winning handsomely 5&4, Rich Bartin and Hugh Mcquire unfortunately losing by a similar margin, so with new partnership of Norman Banfield and Wesley Allen plus Jamie Brodie and Chris Binding still on the course we were 2 – 1 up. Jamie and Chris were having a tough time of it in the tail match and 4 down with 5 to play, looking like the match would be squared up at 2 all, fortunately for us our ‘little’ superstar Wesley had the putter red hot and was holing putts for fun again! Norman and Wes were 2 up with 3 to play and within 50 yards of the par 5 16th when there playing partners duffed a couple of shots and conceded the hole and the match.

Well done team another great result! Looking forwards to a semi-final against Bath.

Another good win in the Somerset Bowl

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.

Somerset Bowl WIN v Isle of Wedmore

"On a relatively calm afternoon at Mendip golf club, we took on a team from the Isle of Wedmore golf club, in the Somerset Bowl (foursomes), a tough match for us with 2 of our 5 pairs giving shots, the rest receiving a solitary shot each. Great wins for Gary French and Wes Allen (4&3) and Chris Binding and Jamie Brodie (4&2). Unfortunately John Williams and Pete Burch lost as did Steve Southgate and Norman Banfield, with Roy and myself left on the course fending off a strong fight back from our opponents, fortunately they missed their par putt at 17 to leave us one up playing the last where we snuck a half to win won up and help us progress to the next round. Well done team some great results! Looking forward to the next round against Vivary or Cleavdon.
