Northants Golf

Seniors Anglian League  v Suffolk

Monday June 17th  Norfolk v Northants Seniors at Sheringham GC.

Another Close Match

What a difference a week makes. Last week we were rained off at Coxmoor and this week we basked in glorious sunshine at Sheringham.

A stiff offshore breeze in the morning made conditions challenging, but Northamptonshire stuck at it and in some tight matches ended the morning foursomes leading 3 1/2 - 1 1/2.

As the morning breeze died down in the afternoon, we needed to get off to a good start and did just that, with solid wins for Greg Shelton, Brendon Moss and Alan Freeman. But Norfolk were not finished and came back strongly, winning the last four games. The match was finely balanced, but with wins for Dennis Mathers and Alistair Heslop the afternoon singles finished at 5 all and a match win for Northamptonshire 8 1/2 - 6 1/2.

A huge thak you to all the team, especially to Gary Hardy, Ted Dunn and Jim Tricklebank who stood in at the 11th hour and travelled to Sheringham on the morning of the match.
