Match v Bulwell Forest (A)

The Team selected for the final InterClub League fixture of the season vs Bulwell Forest on Monday the 23rd July (A) was:

  • Tom Davies
  • Dan Limon
  • Charles Banks
  • James Green
  • Anthony Wain
  • Reserves: Neil Collings,  Sam Costall

This was a match which we needed to win to finish top of our League, but unfortunately the result went against us. 

Depending on other results we could now drop down to third, therefore missing out on promotion. We just cannot seem to get that away win having lost two and halved one in our three away matches. The total number of games played equals thirty. We won twenty one and lost nine, winning only six away. I know it is difficult to win away but our greens must spoil us. We cannot seem to cope on inferior greens . The course last night was very hard and fast and certainly very much favoured the home team, who hardly played a bad shot all night. They were all excellent players.

The three losses were Tom, Charles and Dan. Anthony gained a half and "tree man" James gained our only victory. James has played in all six matches winning five and halving one. James' banter and golf has been superb, so well played James. I would like to thank all the players for giving up their time to play, and representing our Club in a first class manner, and the respect they have given me.

Match result

Bulwell Forest 3½ 1½ Stanton

Finally on behalf of myself and the Team Members I would like to give a very big thank you for the fantastic support given at all the matches - we certainly have been the best supported team.

I will be standing down as your Captain at the end of the season, so thank you all once again for your help and support to everyone involved with the Scratch Team Squad.

STOP PRESS!!!

According to the Notts Union website, the last round of results for once have gone with us. Ruscliffe and Trent Lock halved so we have finished Runners-Up on the number of games won. Hence it would seem that the whitewashes we gained in the home matches were not in vain!

I would therefore like to congratulate all Members of the Scratch Team squad for gaining promotion, so well played everyone!!
