News and information from this event

MTGS v The Northwest MTGS at Blackwell GC
Thursday 27th September 2012

The teams arrived at the lovely Blackwell club around 12.30pm with the weather dry and rather windy... The pairings were announced over soup and sandwiches with Graeme Hunt and Paul Williams teeing off first at 1.30pm. We had 6 matches in all in the usual 4 ball better ball format under match play conditions.
We unfortunately had one player who failed to turn up so Peter Batchelor kindly offered to play a single against two of their team.
I am very pleased to report that Peter won his match, so congratulations to Peter; what a fantastic effort.

As usual it was a very competitive affair but played in a great atmosphere of friendship. It was a close finish with the MTGS prevailing over the Northwest MTGS by a convincing margin..

The matches finished as follows:-
Graeme Hunt and Paul Williams Lost.
Derek Allen and Nick Haig Won
James Crickmay and Steve Drewitt Won
Neil Smith and John Smith Won
John Gorse and Trevor Teer Half
Peter Batchelor Won
MTGS 4 & half NWMTGS 1 & half

The trophy was presented to our President Derek Allen after a lovely dinner and quite a lot of delicious red and white wine. As usual the Northwest team were magnanimous in defeat but vowed to turn us over next year.

My thanks to the catering staff for their kind attention and a big thank you to the chef for a wonderful dinner and desert, also many thanks to the green staff who had done a great job of presenting the course in such excellent condition. Blackwell is always a favourite course of the MTGS and we all look forward to returning next September to defend the trophy.

Our next match is at Stoke Park on the 4th October.

Derek Allen
Match Manager.
