The Men’s Avalon League team played two matches. The first was at Tall Pines, with light showers to keep the team cool.
Simon Jackson and Pete Walker came up with 3&2, their first win of the season together. Jason Huck and James Church, after being down for most of the match, came in strongly at the end to win 3&1.
Glen Crocker and Grant Rogers halved their match. Unfortunately, that was the good news over with – Malcolm Terry and Andy Williams losing 4&2, Ian Burr and Bob Lench losing 2 down.
The next match was at Cricket St. Thomas with a strong team. The first two pairs wanted to get in early, playing some excellent golf, with Simon Jackson and Andy Williams, Jason Huck and James Church winning 6&5.
Next were Malcolm Terry and Glen Crocker, playing some good better ball golf and winning 4&3.
Alan Elkins and debutant, Glyn Hallett, lost marginally 2&1. Last out and taking their game to the eighteenth, encountering the worst of the rain, was Ian Burr and Pascal Norman, coming in with a half.
A great result away from home.
There was a good turnout for the Ladies’ President’s Cup, which was played in light showers, Sandy Heath showing the way with a very creditable nett 70 in this qualifying medal competition. Second was Kim Lord, with nett 73, closely followed by Ladies’ Captain, Tina Davies, on nett 74. The first Bronze division player was Linda Wright, with nett 79.
Wells’ Seniors did well against a strong home team when they travelled to Sherborne for this season’s return fixture.
There were commendable performances by Bill O’Callaghan with Alan Elkins and Len Sweales with Piers Dalby, both pairs gaining well-fought halved matches, whilst the only winners were Allan Bancroft and George White, who achieved a worthy three and one success. The overall four games to two result in Sherborne’s favour was similar to that between these sides two weeks previously, Wells being victors on their home patch on that occasion.
