Long Sutton 'C' Team at Taunton Vale

C - Team Match Report:

After defeats away to strong opposition at The Mendip and then Minehead, Long Sutton C team returned to winning ways with victory at Taunton Vale on Saturday.

And a creditable victory it was with the team winning 4 v 1, so a welcome 14 points added to our tally. Too early yet to establish where that puts us in the league placings but I shall advise as soon as I know.

Well done to the pairings of Nigel Griffiths/Jordan Taylor, Dave Baker/Rob Moore, Paul O'Dea/Jack Hardisty and my partner Roger Barnett.

Saturdays game also marked the end of our away fixtures so now our focus will the final run in of three home games and hopefully, continued success.

Yours in golf

Long Sutton 'C' Team at The Mendip

C - Team Match Report:

The C team game at The Mendip last Saturday was the half way point for us in this season's fixture listing.

Sadly not such a favourable result on this occasion as we were beaten 4 and 1 by a particularly strong home team.  A final result that hides the fact two games lost by just a single hole, one of those going down on the infamous 18th green. Fine margins!

Our winner pairing were the anchor men Paul O'Dea and Jack Hardisty who performed extremely well given the complications they faced.  Well done to Paul & Jack and thanks again to you all for your efforts.

Our next outing is again away so we need to collect ourselves, remain positive and start again.

Provisional team will be posted tomorrow. So indicate availability ASAP please.

Long Sutton 'C' Team at Weston-Super-Mare

C - Team Match Report:

Game 4 for the C team was our first true away fixture and it faced us up against Weston-super-Mare A team.

Their starting line gave food for thought as they fielded eight single figure handicappers. So pairings selected and order of play decided we set about our task in what was remarkably good weather. A rarity at Weston!

And what a tremendous result. A 3 to 2 win. So 11 points in the bag.

The lead and anchor pairings, whilst acquitting themselves admirably, were overcome by better (on the day) opponents. Sandwiched in between however, were the victorious partnerships of John Parkinson & Nige Pogson, Nigel Griffiths & Jack Hardisty and Mark Lawlor & Tim Forward.

A fine end to a fine day.

Congratulations and thank you to my team.

Next outing is away to The Mendip, Saturday 2nd June. Provisional squad listing will be posted this week as I am out of the country 23rd - 30th May

Long Sutton 'A' Team Results So Far

A - Team Match Reports:

The A Team have played 2 matches so far - Saturday 14th April v Brean (Away) and Saturday 28th April v Wedmore (Away).

Brean result - match halved 2 1/2 each.

The first fixture (Brean) was played in difficult conditions with rain and gusting winds. The team has not had the best of starts in previous years and we went with the view that a 3-2 loss taking 6 points from the match would be a better than usual start. The team battled for every point with two matches going to the last green, one being halved and one lost. We won 2 of the 3 remaining matches and ended up with an overall draw, gaining 8 1/2 points for the away fixture. A fantastic result.

Wedmore result - match won 4 / 1.

The team travelled to Wedmore off the back of the great Brean result with high hopes of avenging last years drubbing. At one point things were very close with one match lost and one won and the other 3 games in the balance. A fighting finish over the last few holes saw the remaining matches finish 2 and 1, 2 up and the last match winning on the 18th. A great team performance gave us a 4 / 1 win and 14 points, putting us in a strong position at this early stage in the season.  

My thanks to everyone who played in both fixtures. We can all take great pride from the results and our performance, which I feel sure has been helped by Andrew's Tuesday nights coaching, patience and encouragement of our very motley crew!!


Next fixture - Saturday 12th May v Taunton Vale (Home).
