Benton Hall Golf Club V Abridge, Jubilee Cup match report.
Our efforts at Benton Hall Golf Club were not quiet enough to avoid defeat & gain qualification (6-3). The ‘Singles’ were in for a tough time with local knowledge key. The hosts were not prolific but kept the ball straight and simple. A great fight back by Darren May was the solitary point won in this section.
The ‘Pairs’ once again continued to demonstrate the strength of our side with two commanding wins from Steve Golding & Austin Posner, Tom Goodey & Phil Harris. Mick Collins and Steve Tall were left to play what was an effective dead rubber with pride at stake.
Dave Phillips, Captain felt that much had been gained from this season, progress and improvement, building of a system that players have ‘bought in to’ and a strengthening team ethic. The depth of selection has been considerable with those selected not letting themselves, the team or club down. A big thanks & well done! to all for the massive commitment, effort and support over the last few months
Our attention now focuses upon the Norman Plumb Trophy. We play Harwich & Dovercourt, passports at the ready! Always an interesting competition with 3 pairs home and away in two different parts of the county at the same time!
