Belton Park C Team Match vs Spalding
Belton Park C Team visited Spalding on Monday, July 9th. This away match certainly contained some captains from both clubs, there were 5 captains or vice captains playing in the match!
On a cooler evening than of late, the match was played on dry fairways and greens which were slower than those at Belton Park, proving beneficial to the home team and a very close match was enjoyed by all players.
A new C team player joined us for this match, Mr Alan Barnes who partnered club Captain Colin Mason for our first win of the evening - well done to both players.
The match was followed by a steak pie with all the trimmings and strawberries with ice cream and coffee, thanks to Spalding for lovely hospitality. Spalding came out winners 3½-2½.
|1||Captain Ian Carroll and Simon Denton||Lost 6&5|
|2||Colin Mason and Alan Barnes||Won 1 up|
|3||Keith Smith and Jim Wiggins||Lost 3&1|
|4||John Cooke and Martin Clarke||Halved|
|5||Jack Diment and Ben Bayliss||Won 4&3|
