2014 Review

My apologies for not posting competition results sooner, but hey better late than never!

Spring League Champion: Martin Ishmael

Summer League Champion: Kieran Palin

Autumn League Champion: Gavin Harrison

Singles Matchplay Champion: Kieran Palin

Fourball Betterball Champions: Richard Ishmael & Darren Peet

It was a good year in general with some very closely fought league tables, especially the Summer and Autumn leagues. Both Kieran Palin and Gavin Harrison competed for almost every trophy, with Gavin finishing runner-up in both matchplay competitions. Special mention should go to Peter Bull who scored well throughout the year but narrowly missed out on any silverware.

I should also mention that we did indeed have a return match with SGA on their own patch, but the less said about it the better! As we got a good hiding going down over 7 matches by 5 1/2 to 1 1/2. Roger and Nick Eden got us off to a good start winning their match but from there it was all downhill with the next 5 matches going comprehensively to the home side before Paul Sinker and Kieran Palin claimed a draw in the final match. My thanks to all at SGA for being extremely generous hosts - hopefully we can arrange another match at Porters Wood in the Summer and turn the tables!
