A good start to the formal season of B Team matches which would have been better if I, Iain Reynolds, had remembered to bring my golf game with me!
I had selected Peter Farmer as my partner in the lead game hoping his 2nd club membership at Stover would stand us in good stead, which indeed it did. Peter played very well indeed but saddled to an old goat as he was and combined with some freakish putting from our opponents meant ultimately we lost by one hole.
Simon Rooke and Mal Watchorn won their match by the same margin. B Team debutantes Steve Rew and new member Keir White had a strong halve in their match.
Most unusually Wayne Ebdon and Alec Williams lost to a pair of 6 handicappers 2 & 1 Pete Morris and Keith Brimson won 3 & 2 and finally Andy Hitchman and an injured Chris James lost the final match.
As is always the case the match was conducted in great spirit, we had as usual an excellent buffet breakfast prior to the match, we were blessed with great weather and the course was in really nice condition, if only I could have played golf the day would have been perfect!
Thanks to all who played and especially to Chris James who at very late notice came as a substitute for a no show.
Stover 3.5 Warren 2.5
Next match is Churston at home on Saturday 7th May.
