This was the 13th match of 20 this season, played at home on the Ancaster course which includes the middle 9 holes. This provided an interesting challenge for the away players not familiar with the interesting “middle 9” holes.
The weather was a very warm humid evening and the halfway hut with ice cold drinks and cold chocolate bars were appreciated by all the players. The course was being threatened with distant thunder storms but no rain fell.
Sleaford were keen to avenge the defeat at Sleaford earlier in the season, but the Belton Park team won convincingly by 5½ to ½.
