Belton Park Seniors played their traditional interclub season-opening Match against Radcliffe-on-Trent Seniors on Tuesday 26th March. In springlike weather, it proved to be a competitive event, played in a very sportsmanlike manner.
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.
