B team v Ladbrook Park 12 July

Back to winning ways after last week's blip !! A fine win at home thanks to a couple of last minute subs stepping in to ensure we had a full team.

Ian Sparkes fresh from his vitamin D boost in Spain partnered the ever-willing late sub Keith Scott to a 2-1 win. Peter Meaney making his first appearance of the season partnered Richard Blasdale to a 3-2 victory which was matched by stalwarts Martin Dalton and Lalit Patel.

The wily old duo of Harry Kenth and Jim Wild continued their winning partnership with a victory 2 up and the deadly duo (we once qualified for the International Pairs semi finals) of Steve Cottier and Dennis Pick also won 3-2.

A less impressive and least desired record of losing every B Team match so far this season was upheld by John Brady who managed to drag Keith Phipps to the dark side of golf.


It is a great testament to OGC that a friend of our Competitions Secretary John Hall happened to play for Ladbrook in this match and emailed him to say how good our course and catering were. Well done to all concerned.


The sign up sheets are on the board for all the matches in August including the B TEAM MEDAL for the F.L.KNOCK Trophy on 23rd August. This is a board competition where the winner has his name held in perpetuity on a board in the clubhouse. (If no-one else joins in I might be in with a chance of winning so feel free to miss this one !!!)
