B Team v Shirley

Ye Gads!

The slump continues as we stagger towards the finishing line.

Our wily old duo of Jim Wild and David Nicholas were very unlucky to come up against a Shirley player who went round in gross 71 off a 10 handicap - I have offered to introduce him to their handicap committee! Needless to say this was a 6/5 defeat, hard luck guys.

Gerry Donohoe's run of form has come to an abrupt end as he and partner Paul Evans lost 4/3. Neal Lucas and Nigel Hinman were beaten 2/1 and Dave Lakin and I finished 1 down.

Keith Scott and Ian Sparkes have kept their score a secret but unfortunately it was also a defeat.

Our sole victors on the day and avoiding a whitewash were Andy Watkinson and (surprisingly) John "Jonah" Brady who won 1 up - well done chaps.

So that leaves us with just three matches to go - Handsworth away, Fulford Heath and Robin Hood at home.

There are still some opportunities for B Team players to attend our opponents B Team dinners -  which normally include a round of golf as well as dinner and I would be grateful if any available slots are filled as soon as possible as I need to reply to the invitations - details are on the B Team Noticeboard.
