LSGC Juniors Vs Weston Super Mare GC
This was our final match of the season and it was a title decider as to who would be crowned Championship North winners.
In our first singles Sam Agar played against a strong 12 handicapper and having a good start winning the first 3 holes Sam held on all the way through the round winning his match for Long Sutton 3 & 2 giving Long Sutton a well needed point in the match. In our second singles match Haydn 'Legend' Gibson played a 15 handicapped player and despite giving a lot of shots to the opponent there was nothing between the two and they ended up halving the match so this was 1 1/2 to 1/2 after our two singles matches.
In our 1st 4 ball match it was the pairing of Cameron Barrett and Sam Clarke, they were having to give a few shots to the opponents they played well together but the opponents played very well and holed some good putts and the crucial putt was holed by one of the Weston players and they won the match 2&1. 1 1/2 to 1 1/2 after three games with one left to play. Then in our 2nd 4 ball match it was the combination of Stacie Watts and Shane Crocker playing in the final match they was also giving a lot of shots out to the opponents and unfortunately they lost their match losing on the 16th 3&2 so this gave Weston Super Mare the winning margin of a 2 1/2 - 1 1/2 victory and giving them the best of chances to win the league this season.
So this season it looks like we will finish 2nd so I would like to thank all the juniors who played this year and everyone else who has helped me, Colin Barrett, John Watts, Nick Clarke and all the other parents I couldn’t have done it without all your help for the last 3 years. This will be my final season running the junior side so thank you very much for all the support it is much appreciated. We have our Knockout's cup semi final on Saturday against Weston and if we win we will be in the final playing against Minehead at Taunton and Pickeridge. I wish you all the best for next season and I will see you all soon.
