On Thursday, August 9th the seniors were welcomed by their counterparts at Market Rasen. The weather was cloudy and overcast, but it stayed dry. The course was very dry and baked hard due to lack of rain and the shortage of water for irrigation. The greens were firm but quite slow and that seemed to favour the home team!
The final result was a win for Market Rasen by 5½ to 2½.
