What a day for golf......May 29th......full waterproofs and woolly hats.

For the second match running, our under 16 team was faced on paper by a very much stronger Gloucestershire team, and once again our boys did the county proud.

Good wins in the morning Foursomes by David Burton and Cian Lowe and the first of two wins on the day by Lawrence Hill and his partner Charlie Beasley.

It was good to be able to welcome back into the group, our Captain Nick Johnson, who had a good singles victory and Tom Robinson both of whom have been suffering over the winter months with major arm injuries.

Our top singles player Cian Lowe in this match would have been matched with the Gloucester number 9  !!  Such were the handicap differences, but once again our boys fought very hard and in one case fought against some very unsavoury language and behaviour and showed strength of character to win his singles match. I have not named that person, he knows who he is, but my sincere congratulations go to him for a wonderful performance.

I should like to mention Ben Finch and Luke Johnson, both of whom gave away plenty of shots, Ben went down on the last and Luke went down 2&1 but both gave really strong performances of which they and the county can be proud.

My thanks to all of my team who once again were a credit to the county and my thanks to Thornbury Golf Club who gave us the most wonderful greens to play on.
