3 Counties Winter Knockout Final 8.3.15
Long Sutton and Cannington B made it through to the Final of the Winter Knockout. A prize in itself. The two teams met today on the Newton Course and from their elevated white winter tee position, battle commenced! And it was quite a battle. One of the Cannington pairs came up against Sandra Basford and Sean and found they had to give Sandra 8 shots…that match was decided on the 17th in Cannington’s favour. Steve Stopforth and Henry were each giving 10 shots…too many in the end with steady Cannington players. Other pairings had hardly anything in it and that is where Long Sutton came good, tussling it out and winning the vital 3 out of 5 matches and the Winter KnockoutTrophy for the first time.
Thank you to everyone who contributed through the winter to make this possible. Sorry we could not use Ray and the Mcraes in this last match…Ray came a cropper with the chainsaw and Mike fell off a roof! Thank you to Richard Bastin for filling the void. Hopefully both will be fit to play in the last round of the Winter Salva, at Long Sutton, on Sunday, 22nd March. Please see the sign up sheet in the corridor. We need a team of 12 that day…our task…to reduce the 10 points between ourselves and first place!
Today’s team were Richard Bastin and Timothy Edwards, Sarah and Steve Uzzell, Sean Monaghan and Sandra Basford, Steve Stopforth and Henry Edwards, Nigel Brighouse and myself. Previous rounds had included Steve Cousins, Tyler, Rupert and Sam Clarke. Thank you one and all!
