Match Report.

The quality of the players fielded by Notts meant that each match was played to a very high standard, the majority of which were decided on the last green! The morning Four-Balls finished even at three matches each, Messers Carpenter/Swain, Thompson/Chima, White and Cartwright all won their matches, well done to them.

The weather forecast suggested a deluge of rain for the afternoon session so dinner was brought forward in case play was not possible, in the event nothing of any significance occurred and the afternoon Greensomes got under way. The matches again were closely contested but Notts came out on top by 3 1/2 to 2 1/2. Well done to Messers Thompson, Chima, Kerr and Swann for winning their matches and to Adams and Martin for halving theirs.

My sincere thanks to the Ground Staff for presenting their course in such good condition, particularly the greens which were a pleasure to putt on. Last but not least the catering and bar staff who looked after us splendidly all day, the meal was excellent.
