News and information from this event

MTGS v The Northwest MTGS at Blackwell GC
Thursday 22nd September 2011

The teams arrived at the lovely Blackwell club around 12pm with rather overcast skies... The pairings were announced over soup and sandwiches with James Crickmay and Derek Allen teeing off first at 1.30pm. We had 6 matches in all in the usual 4 ball better ball format under match play conditions.

As usual it was a very competitive affair but played in a great atmosphere of bon ami. It was a close finish with the MTGS prevailing over the Northwest MTGS by 1 point.

The matches finished as follows:-

James Crickmay and Derek Allen got a hard fought half, John Smith and Mathew Boyles won, Martin Howe’s and Steve Drewett won, John Gorse and Bob Singh lost, Graeme Hunt and Neil Smith lost, and Godfrey Hall and Nick Haig came in with a vital win as the anchor pair to win the match overall.

Final score MTGS 3 ½ Northwest 2 ½

The trophy was presented to our President James Crickmay 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 3rd October.

Derek Allen
Match Manager.
