MTGS vs Kia Motors UK Match Report, 14th October, 2019
Earlier today, we held the inaugural match between MTGS and Kia Motors at Worplesdon Golf Club. Before the match, our host and sponsors treated us to the traditional pre golf breakfast of coffee and bacon rolls. Monday morning traffic played its part in delaying a couple of members and conditions, prior to proceedings getting underway, were more suited to mallards than golfers.That said, sixteen hardy souls did battle with the elements and the course: notwithstanding the heavy showers we’d had earlier, the course held up remarkably well, although it was rather soggy underfoot.
All managed to complete their round: we showered and changed and were provided with a splendid three course lunch, with wine and other refreshments.
Lunch over, John Hargreaves of Kia Motors gave a very amusing speech before announcing the result, which was MTGS 2.5 points and Kia Motors 1.5 points, and presented me with the trophy of a Kia model car on a wooden plinth.
On behalf of the MTGS, I offered my grateful thanks to Kia Motors for their sponsorship and in particular to John Hargreaves who was one of the main drivers within Kia and who made most of the arrangements with Worplesdon. I concluded by thanking the MTGS team for supporting the match and invited them to toast the Kia team, whom we look forward to playing again next year.
David McCluskey, Match Manager.
