On Tuesday 4th July 2017 Long Sutton Seniors played our return fixture against Bridport Golf Club.
Game 1: Captain Rod (9) and Endaf Lewis (18) take on Bridport Captain Jim Thorpe (17) and partner Alan Harvey (18) it was good to have Endaf back in the team again. We had a great start and we were 4 up at the turn with Endaf’s magic putter rolling everything into the hole. We won our game 5&3 so well played Endaf .
Game 2: Chris Hockey (20) and Keith Lancey (19) who played Alan Bently(24) and Chris Holsworthy(21) Chris asked if Keith could be his partner and I agreed “ never again” they lost 3&1.
Game 3: Bill Bond and Alan Webber, the "Dream Team", played a good Bridport pair and won 5 & 4.
Game 4: Ken Jacobs (20) and Peter Hill(18) played John Pitchford (21) and Angus Niccoll(17). They had a very tight game but lost 3&1 .Thank you both for playing.
Game 5: Jon Searl(16) and Chris Thayer(17), the "Captains Bankers" had a great win against a strong Bridport pair of Malcolm Peach(20) and Dave Cole(27); well played to you both.
Game 6: It was all down to the last pairing of Steve Uzzell (19) and Gordon Clamp (25) against Malcolm Noble(17) and Keith Peraux (23). This was more than just a contest of odd surnames, the match depended on the result. It was “ G Clamp” who took a firm grip on the game and Long Sutton got the half point to win the match. Sorry Gordon, but well played to you both.
Final result Long Sutton 31/2 Bridport 2 ½
