1st Team report and match scoresheet v Notts
1st Team v Notts - Sunday 11th May 2014
Our first league match of the season was against Nottinghamshire at Hollywood golf club. The match was a tale of two halves.
The foursomes saw us take a good lead with convincing wins for Vigurs/Mcmahon,Lane/Hill and Sadler/Gough.The other two matches were really close with Carpenter/James eventually ending in a half and Norman/Feavyour losing at the last. As a result, we were 3 ½ to 1 ½ up and looking good at lunch.
The singles was a very different story with Nottinghamshire winning five out of the first six matches.
(our only win coming from Gough) They were now favourites to take all the points. However, it was not all over and with good wins from Lane, McMahon and Norman, who won the last two holes, we battled hard to get a halved match.
Richard Sadler could only watch and admire Ross Overton's five birdies in the last five holes to win by one hole.
Ollie Gough powers a four iron onto the 16th Green to win his singles match.
This now makes it really important to get an away win at Bridgnorth in our next game to stay in contention in this year's league.
I would like to thank Hollywood golf club for looking after us and providing a course in such good condition, especially the greens.Thanks also to Stuart Pritchard, Bill Thompson and Peter Adams for their continued support on the day.
