LSGC Juniors Vs Wheathill GC
After our first victory of the season we had our first home match of the season against a strong Wheathill side. Weather was really good and the golf course looked fantastic and this benefitted all of us which helped our team with the outcome of the result.
In our first singles match Haydn 'Legend' Gibson played a 5 handicap player and despite getting shots from his opponent he still swept away his opposite number in a fantastic match play manner of a 10 & 8 win and finishing 4 under par after 10 holes giving Long Sutton our first point of the match. The second singles match was Cameron Barrett against a 10 handicap player and despite losing the first he played brilliantly and secured a well deserved 7 & 6 victory ensuring another point for the Long Sutton team.
Our 1st 4 ball match was the pairing of Stacie Watts and Shane Crocker. Shane was making his debut for the junior team after playing so well throughout Junior Club night. Despite having to give alot of shots to the opponents they played well together and won their match 2 & 1 in a good team effort with Shane making a birdie on the last to ensure another point for Long Sutton making it 3 - 0 with one to play. Then in our 2nd 4 ball match it was the combination of Sam Clarke and Rubin Stacey they was also giving alot of shots to the opponents but that did not faze the young pairing as they played in a great team effort getting a well deserved half in their match and giving Long Sutton the winning margin of a 3 1/2- 1/2 victory. Another great result for Long Sutton’s Junior Team.
Our next match is on the 8th July and is an Away match against Weston Super Mare GC. The team sheet is available for juniors to confirm for the next game. Well played and see you all till the next match.
