Seniors Friendly Match against Disley GC Away
We had a complete reversal of fortunes in the weather, after the warmth experienced in the previous match. We played through heavy bouts of Hail & Rain, a rumble of thunder and a very occasional glimpse of the sun. Neverthess some excellent golf was played and enjoyed by all concerned and the team managed a win , having won 4 games, losing 3 and halving 1.
So despite our soaking we thank our hosts who were excellent company, as always. It could take a long time to dry out all the clothing and equipment though.
Congratulations to the winning pairs who were:
Arthur Oliver/Phil Smallman, Trevor Jones/Mike Howard, Dave Holt/Mike Richardson, Harry Howe/Tony Jones, with Steve Price/Peter Christian gaining a half.

The winning pairs who should all be commended for their excellent performance were:
Mr.President/A.Merrick, K.Wright/P.Christian, P.Smallman/D.Holt, L.Swann/H.Howe, A.Oliver/S.Price.
A really enjoyable day's golf was had by all, and it was good to meet up with our old friends from Chapel as well as meeting some new ones. We look forward to playing again at Chapel in May .
