Northants v Derbyshire @ Wellingborough Golf Club 30th July 2018
A very tight match in somewhat cooler conditions than of late! With the course looking better for a tinge of green now.
As usual with this fixturewe had a very competitive match but also some great fun with lots of friendly banter. The morning greensomes were drawnwith 3 wins each. Sadly however, I do have to mention that the Captain's ball was lost for the 3rd successive game, and Mr Freeman is now on a verbal warning!!!!
Continuing the tight games from the morning, the afternoon 4 balls came down to the last match, where a win by Derby could have secured them a draw. However , a magnificent approach to 3ft by George Hiams secured the half and victory for the team.
Well played everyone.
