Seniors v. Leicestershire

Wednesday August 24th at Kibworth GC 

The hottest day of the year greeted the teams at Kibworth GC.

A win would see the Seniors remain in contention for the Midland League East title.

Leicestershire fielded their strongest team possible with two one handicappers playing at number five group.

The morning foursomes saw the now, ever reliable pairing of Richard Cole and Alan Freeman claim the first point of the day.

A four point to two deficit at lunchtime left the our team with a long afternoon ahead in the ever soaring heat.

The top three pairings played well, but unfortunately the last three pairings came up short, leaving the Leicestershire team with a twelve points to six points win. 

Thank you to Kibworth for hosting the match and looking after us so well.

The Club Captain and Seniors Captain were on hand to meet and greet us  throughout the day. Which was a nice touch from the Club.

 

Our next match is against Staffordshire on the 5th September at Aston Wood GC.
