Gents' InterClub Knockout 2018

SECOND ROUND

The Stanton InterClub Men's Foursomes Team started their 2018 campaign in fine style against Notts GC at Wollaton Park on Monday 11th June 2018.

The Team selected was:-

  • Charles Banks & Anthony Wain
  • Digby Kite & Jon Kisby
  • Reserve:  Neil Collings

On an extremely warm evening, the beautiful Wollaton Park course was in lovely condition, with the match being played in good spirits on both sides. We were especially keen to avenge the defeat handed out by Notts to our Mixed InterClub Foursomes Team a few days ago!

Match 1 - Charles Banks & Anthony Wain vs Richard Wileman & Neil Glasser

Although giving three shots, Charles & Anthony won their match 7 UP. They played excellent golf throughout and proved to be a very strong pairing. With good driving and approach shots they were always in control of their match. Well played to both of them.

Match 2 -  Digby Kite & Jon Kisby vs Simon Molloy & Liam Keefe .

Giving one shot, Digby & Jon quickly went two up with two birdies in the first three holes. However, the match began to go in favour of Notts who managed to take a two hole lead with two holes to play. Totally unfazed by this minor setback, the Stanton pair fought back, winning holes 17 and 18 to finish the match ALL SQUARE.

Match result

Stanton WON 7 UP

A very good result and an excellent team performance. Once again I am sure the encouraging support from the Stanton faithful helped the Team to gain a fine victory, for which we all thank them profusely.

We now look forward to the next round on Monday July 2nd vs Southwell at Chilwell Manor.
