Seniors Victorious over Rutland Water – 5½ - 2½

On Monday, September 9th the Seniors welcomed Rutland Water Seniors for the return friendly match. After losing the away fixture back in June 4½ - 3½, the Belton team were keen to get their own back. The match was played in soggy wet conditions with light rain, but the greens were in excellent condition.

The final result was a good win for the Belton team by 5½ - 2½. After an excellent post-match lunch, the game of heads and tails was won by Derek Little. Rutland Water Captain Bob Haynes praised the excellent condition of the course and thanked the catering staff and the halfway house volunteers for their efforts.
