Seniors Somerset Bowl Final - WINNERS
October 20 2018
Wells GC team took on Farrington Park in the final of the Seniors` Somerset Bowl recently, at Mendip GC. The weather was amazing considering the time of year, starting off under a blue sky. The wind got up as time went on and the temperatures dropped, making the conditions no easier.
First out Nick Carter and Mike Magrath, and second out Bill McCollum and Andy Williams made short work of their opponents, both winning 4&3. Captain Glen Crocker and Nick Wilson had a comfortable afternoon, never behind and winning 5&4 to clinch the match quite quickly. Fourth out Tim Harris and Martin Waller had a mountain to climb, giving nine shots. They were up to the job and triumphed 2&1.
The middle match, featuring Martin Barnes and Steve Clark against formidable opponents, quickly went 4 down. The Wells players fought back to get a fantastic half.
This meant that Wells won the match 4.5 to 0.5 and became 2018 Somerset Seniors` Bowl winners, the second time the club have won the trophy. Thanks to the few brave people who turned up and supported both teams.
Congratulations to all players who played in the Wells Seniors' team. Well done.
