Special mention should be made of David Manners who fought bravely against 2 of the opposition in a singles and nearly beat a 4 handicapper , who only just holed a long put on the 18th to halve the match. Also to Neil Avent and Dannny Maylin who managed to win our only point of the morning.
The afternoon proved more difficult especially after experiencing a very heavy rain shower for about ten minutes. Derek Raphael and David Manners were our only success in scoring a half. Brian Woodbridge had to bring up the rear and play a singles match against two people. This proved a bridge too far, losing 2-1 and 4-3 coming off the course last in the semi dark.
All in all a very pleasant day was experienced by both sides in a very friendly and convivial atmosphere.
The opposition reversed the result of last year by having a convincing win 8-2. We look forward to the contest next year.
