Monday 27th June saw Roger Brassington lead a team from Long Sutton to the course at Kingweston.
The course was in excellent condition, but the greens tended to be slow and even though we lost heavily, the games in many cases, were keenly contested and on another day it could have been a different result.The home side were in good form and used the home leg to their advantage.

The second team of Franco Calandrini and John Jeanes lost as well, 7&5
The third team of Steve Uzzell and John Rooks played well to score a half
Fourth team out was John Whitehead and Alan Webber and they played a tight game losing by 1 hole.
Similarly, Bob Fill and Cyril Griffin also lost by one hole.
