Mendip Spring Anniversary Trophy ~ Senior’s Team Event
Long Sutton Seniors Section were invited by Mendip Spring to enter a team in the event this year for the first time. We accepted the invite & entered what seemed a strong team of 8. The event was attended by 12 Clubs. It was a great day enjoyed by all who attended.
Unfortunately the team, whilst returning good scores, ended up middle of the group with respectable total of 148 points. The winners (The Bristol) returned
a magnificent score of 168, 10 points more than the second place team. So we would have needed a miracle to have taken the trophy this year, i.e. an average
of 42 points for each pair.
Long Sutton Team: Nigel Griffiths & Glyn Ottery– 41 pts (we thought a very good score)
Franco Calandrini & Rich Bartin - 37 pts
Alec Lyon & Ian Jackaman - 36 pts
Martin Hawkins & Mike Bowling - 34 pts
A great “thank you” to Glyn Ottery from me for stepping in at the last minute, due to withdrawal of Len from an illness.
