Team Result

Stanton 4½  ½ Springwater

A good home victory for the Stanton Team against a very solid Springwater side on Tuesday night. The unusual north easterly wind not only took off the edge of the temperature but also took away a little of the home advantage because of the unfamiliar wind direction. However, there was some extremely fine golf played on both sides. It was a very competitive match but as always it was played in the right spirit by both sets of players. As usual there was a very strong showing of home support from the Stanton Members and this was commented on and much appreciated by the players.

Special thanks must go to 15-year-old Tom Bagshaw who stepped in at the 11th hour and put in a very solid performance for the team. Three up after three holes, Tom blazed round the front nine in 2 under par, leaving his veteran opponent reeling and shell-shocked. He calmly closed out his match on the 13th green with an amazing display of self-assurance, well beyond his formative years. Well done Tom!

Also special thanks to Dan Branson and his Team who cut fresh holes and hand-mowed the greens. The evening was capped off with a fine steak pie and mash meal provided by Tracey and the Catering Team.

Thank you to all involved.

The next Men's Scratch InterClub match is against Bulwell Forest on Tuesday 7th May - 4.30 pm start

 Again, any support would be most welcome and appreciated, and as proved tonight, your presence really does make a difference!
