MTGS V Midlands MTGS Tuesday 14th June 2016 at Tadmarton G.C.
The teams arrived at the picturesque Tadmarton Heath club around 12.30 on a dry grey day but with reports of heavy rainstorms on the way from the North. The pairings were announced after a soup and sandwich lunch. Due to some confusion regarding team numbers we fielded 10 players but the Midlands brought 12. This required two from the MTGS having to play as singles.
The forecast rain eventually arrived together with a fair helping of thunder and lightning. Play was suspended for an hour with all teams returning to the clubhouse. For some reason they omitted to tell Neil Smith and Miles Roberts who continued to play until eventually they realized they had the course to themselves, at least this allowed them to finish first. It was a close run thing with the scores being level waiting for the last team to arrive back. The match finished with a win to the Midlands.
Barry Williams playing alone lost, Lee Cohen playing alone won, Neil Smith and Miles Roberts halved their match. John Callender and Pawan Kenth lost, Paul Williams and David Warren won. David Manchester and Terry Hunt lost.
Final score MTGS 2.5 - Midlands MTGS 3.5
The trophy was presented to the Midlands captain Brian Cooke after a super dinner.
Our thanks must go to the catering staff who looked after us so well and to the green staff for keeping the course in such good condition.
Also thanks to the reserves for standing in at such short notice.
We look forward to returning next year to reclaim the trophy.
