Seniors Match (A) v Alexander Park
27th Jun 2019
R&PPGC lost 5-1 v Alexander Park
Apparently 45,000 trees were planted at Alexander Park 4 years ago when the course was created ..... and my haven't they grown !
There was much muttering and thrashing among the branches as the 'old boys' took to the ever-narrowing and lengthy fairways to take on the current Three Counties Round Robin Champions. R&PP came home with red faces though; whether as a result of the glorious summer sunshine (at last!) or the effects of a chastening 5-1 defeat is difficult to determine.
Of the R&PPGC contingent, Roger Jones stands head and shoulders above the also-rans as the player (virtually single-handedly) responsible for ending your Captain's recent dismal run of consecutive defeats with a 1up victory first out; keeping his head on the last to par while all around were losing theirs! Thanks Roger!
The ever-competitive Ed Nicklin & George Postans battled to the last to a 1 down defeat, Roger Savage & Dave Johnston similarly to 2&1 defeat, Mal Shepherd & Phil Lane went down 3&2, while the Daves Philips & Brace succumbed 4&3, matched by the (former!) points machine Mick Huggins & Mal Stanley who lost by the same margin.
Next fixtures are both friendlies, first this coming Thursday 4th July away at Cleeve Cloud then home to Kingfisher on Thursday 11th.
