Northants Golf

Team v Suffolk 2016Seniors v. Suffolk

Thursday May 5th 2016

Stowmarket Golf Club                                                                   


On a beautiful day at Stowmarket, the seniors started their 2016 Anglian league campaign in defence of their title.

Seven of the players arrived a day early and played a very valuable practise round on a tricky course.

This season sees some changes in team personnel as younger seniors in the clubs become of age.

Notable newcomers were Alan Wrigley, Northants County and Alan Freeman, Overstone Park. Both of these players had winning debuts.

The senior’s lack of foursomes scoring was discussed during the winter as being our big weakness. New pairings this year paid off, and the team were ahead in the morning, three and a half to one and a half.

The afternoon singles saw a six to four margin, giving the County Seniors an excellent away win to start the season.

The next Anglian league fixture is at home against our Lincolnshire at Northants County.

A big thank you to Stowmarket GC, the staff were all excellent and made us feel very welcome.

Well played to the team, a really excellent start and a great team spirit.

Mike Abbotts

 County Seniors Captain.
