Seniors' Match report: v. Louth

    As our ‘Match Season’ drew to a close, we entertained Louth Seniors for our last match.   The games were all played in good spirit, and we didn’t get too wet!   The course as usual was in very good condition after the heavy rain of the weekend, which again is thanks to John Hart and his team.    What would we do without them!     The opposition were very impressed.

 

   Thanks were also given to the catering staff for the after match meal.    A special thank you to Peter and Miriam Kennelly for providing us with excellent refreshments at the halfway house.   Well done Peter and Miriam.

 

    The result of the match was a win for Blankney  by  4½  to 3 ½ .   Well done the Blankney team.   This means that our final tally is :-  Played 23, Won 12, Halved 5 and lost 6.   An excellent record.

 

    As this was the last match of the season, I would like to thank the Blankney teams who have turned out to support the Club throughout the past months.   We have had a nucleus of people  who have kept the fixtures alive, even when we could only raise 6 or 7 pairs, so once again I thank you all for your support, and hope you will give Fred and Vice Capt. Robby your support next season.

Seniors' Match Report v. South Kyme (Away)

 

    Our last away match of the season was at South Kyme.   The weather was very good to us and the course, although rather wet in places, was in good condition.   As has been a regular occurrence this year, we were only able to field 7 pairs, but this did not detract from the keeness of the players.

 

     We were treated to an excellent carving buffet after the match and thanks were given to the catering staff.    Also, Sth. Kyme laid on an excellent half way house, which was very welcome.

 

       Unfortunately the day was spoiled by the result, which was 4/3 to South Kyme, but my thanks go to our team who turned out to play.

SENIORS' MATCH REPORT V. CARHOLME

       On a fine day on Oct. 2nd we played Carholme on their course.    The weather was very good after all the weekend rain, but the course was very wet and almost unplayable in places.   However the match, as usual with the Carholme team, was played with lots of good humour.

 

        We were treated to an excellent after match meal, and thanks were given to the catering staff.

 

          Unfortunately we had to play with 15 players, but thanks, and a big ‘Well Done’ to Robby Boyce who halved his game without a playing partner!

 

           Despite the best efforts of everyone, the match ended with a win for Carholme by 6 games to 2.

 

            Better luck next time guys and thanks for all your efforts.
