After a hard winter training schedule Olton B Team finally kicked off the season with a match against the "dibbles" from West Midlands and Solihull Police.
Despite the forecast of wind, rain, snow, plagues of locusts (makes a change from crows doesn't it?) etc we took to the fairways and enjoyed fine weather throughout the match followed by an enjoyable meal with carve at the table roast pork (Gerry the clue was the apple sauce!) Note to all - if you want a carver at the table get Nigel Hinman who turned the joint into something strongly resembling a sliced loaf before serving.
It was a delight to welcome three new players to our ranks : Nigel Hinman, Ian Sparkes and David Grenfell.
The results were as follows:
Bob Harris & Ian Sparkes lost 2/1
Mike Symons & Dave Grenfell won 2/1
Gerry Donohoe & Nigel Hinman won 5/4
Peter Millane & Harry Kenth lost 2/1
Dave Lakin & Keith Phipps halved
Steve Cottier & Paul Higgins halved The overall match result being a half.
Unfortunately our next Match at Ladbrook Park was postponed due to a waterlogged course.
