B Team v Moor Hall 27 July

It was a pleasure to welcome Moor Hall back to our fixture list after an absence of several years even though this season we have just the one fixture. Having enjoyed our company and hospitality they are keen to double up next season if we can agree diary dates which is good news.

Pat Coleman enquired before the match how our season was going so far and after telling her we had lost one more than we had won we were under strict instructions to redress the balance which I am pleased to say we duly did. Pat may be hired as our motivational coach for the rest of the season !

A fine afternoon allowed us to show off our well presented course which received many compliments from our opponents as did our post match meal. My thanks to Mark Smith and the Greens Staff and to Emma and Chris & co in the kitchen.

The individual game scores were :

Lalit Patel and Ken Crossland won 7/6

David Newman and Ian Sparkes won 3/2

Barrie Corless and John Pegg on his first outing this season won 2/1

Dermot Geoghegan and Gerry Donohoe halved

The two pairings of Ian Barratt with Jim Wild and Steve Cottier with Bob Harris both lost 3/2

The overall result being a win for OGC 3 1/2 to 2 1/2.

Next up a tricky away match to Robin Hood on Thursday 4th August.
