L’Empereur 25 March
The sun was out and the course was in good condition (the greens running quick and true) for the annual Seniors versus Juniors match. Alastair Fyfe captained the Juniors and Lester Dudfield (on a visit from his new home in France) captained the Seniors. The rules were fairer this year with the no anti-mulligans and only one mulligan per Senior. That may have to be revised after the Juniors had a comprehensive win!
in the first match the juniors got off to a good start with Adrian O’Sullivan and Gavin Watt won 3-0 against Andrew Budd and Debbie Wright (a post match stewards inquiry though on the juniors exchanging clubs during the round (tut,tut) didn’t affect the outcome)…The Seniors came out on top in th second match with Syd Wright and Arthur Thompson winning 2-1 against Majed Hamachi and Jorgen Sil. Nigel and Lars lost 3-0 to the junior pairing of John Musunga and Ian Bullied. Suzanne and Bill lost 1-2 against Andre and Jeroen. The captain’s match was a 3-0 win for the juniors with Alastair and Barry beating Rob McCormick and Lester Dudfield. in the final match a singles battle between Dan Coch and Yves Alexandre ended in a victory for the seniors leaving the final score of 12-4.
thanks to the captains and to Jorgen who maintained the fine tradition of the youngest member collecting the lunch money! Lunch was on the sunny terrace although port and jackets were in short supply – note to organisers for next year….
