Captain vs Vice Captain, a 4 Ball Better Ball match play competition, was held by the Farrington Park Ladies’ Section on the morning of Thursday 16th March.

Captain Pauline Young’s teams (adorned in blue and green) took on the Vice-Captain Jackie Willcox’s team,( playing in pink and purple). With players dropping out early in the morning due to illness, Jackie’s side was up against it, with two of her teams having just one player taking on two of the Captain’s. Despite this, the result was a draw. 4 wins each with one match halved. Jackie Walker had the only 2 spot birdie on the par 3 5th hole.

Jackie Willcox had organised a second-hand book and jigsaw puzzle sale during the day. All the proceeds from the sale of the books and puzzles will go to Pauline’s charity of the year- “Refuge against violence to women and children”. Thanks to the generosity of the donations and purchases, a total of £96 was raised.

A great day was enjoyed by all the participants enhanced by the rain not making its threatened appearance.
