Seniors Match vs Radcliffe-on-Trent - March 26th

With 6 of the 8 games played, things were not looking good for the Belton Park team, but first Colin Mason & Gary Hill and then Steve Calvert & Peter Hancock came in with good wins to make the overall result a creditable 4 - 4 tie.
 
Radcliffe captain Steve Lawes thanked the Belton Park greens staff for presenting a course in such fine condition, and the catering staff for the wonderful meal shared by both teams after the match.
