Match report – LSGC Seniors v  Honiton,  away.


Another match that was originally scheduled for September,  this back match  was finally played on 17th October.   With the seniors’ AGM taking  place on 13th October, when I handed the captaincy to Rod,  I had scheduled  a holiday  from the 15th and was therefore unavailable  for the Honiton game. Bit disappointed really, as I enjoy the Honiton course and the food is always top draw. Captain Rod was also unavailable and therefore I was pleased when club captain John Williams  offered to step in for me.  Before I jetted off to the sun, I had picked the team for the day, based mainly on those selected for the original match and on paper we looked pretty strong :-



Match 1 John would be partnered by Tim Forward.

Match 2  Richard Bartin & Franco

Match 3  Dave Manning & Alan Webber

Match 4  Graham Brimble & Peter Hill

Match 5  Gordon Clamp & Gavin Baker

Match 6  Dave Kennedy & Stewart  Thompson


A lot of experience, some good match play golfers, I was confident.


Not sure what went wrong. I didn’t get all the details, just an email to advise me we had lost!  Apparently, at the post match meal,  our  captain John blamed poor team selection. Fair enough. I understand the Honiton golfers were most hospitable and a good day out was enjoyed by all.  My thanks to everyone who took  part.
