So, going into the third and final round of the Tri-Match series at Cricket St Thomas on Tuesday 6th August, Long Sutton were way out in the lead by 42 points on 335 points, with Cricket St Thomas and Wheathill tying in second place with 293 points. Playing a stableford competition in teams of 3, one from each club, with 6 scores to count of the 8, players it was a foregone conclusion that Long Sutton would retain the trophy for the second year running, wasn’t it? However, after the first three matches in, Cricket had added 104 points to their score, Long Sutton 83 points and Wheathill 76 points. Our team captain, Sandra Basford, must have been a little worried. However, although on the day Long Sutton came third, we had accrued enough points in the first two rounds to hang on and win the Tri-Match series.
Well done to everyone who has played throughout the spring and summer months and to our team captain Sandra.
