         Winter Knockout  Final v Wincanton

Held at Cricket-St-Thomas  Golf Course  on Saturday 10 March

 


A week of poor weather prompted Captain Dinker to make an early morning rally call to his troops informing them that the course was open for play but with ten temporary greens for the 3 Counties Winter Knock Out Final against our friends from Wincanton. Much of the pre-game chat centred around whether a Cup Final should be play with so many greens out of play but the general consensus was it was the same for both sides. Back in the side from his two month sabbatical with Donald Trump was Blatchy who was glad to be back amongst friends! 


The weather abated and it was in balmy conditions that saw the first group away, however the ten temporary greens were replaced by eighteen!, Mad Mitch alongside Lee (Mel said I can play) Smith, thought is was still raining and took shelter in the trees after his tee shot hacking his way down the first, ably assisted by Mitch who was doing the same! Alas they got over their first tee nerves to play some quality golf to bag a fine 5&3 win.


Next up was The Village Master Builder Dave Coolie alongside El Bow. Whilst discussing the finer arts of brick work the boys took a commanding lead. Unfortunately, the lead they built was along the same lines as the walls they build.....crumbling!! However, they dug in to claim victory on the last hole one up!


Third on the tee was Blatchy alongside Captain Dinker. Not having swung a club for two months led to some first tee nerves from Blatchy but  after banging one down the middle and bagging a steady par the nerves soon settled and a tight match ensued. Village Hinks was finding things tough early on but came into his own on the back nine to play some steady golf leading to the pair to bringing home a 3&2 win.


Fourth out was Pikey Pitcher fresh from adding the Winter Knock Out Trophy to his caravan trophy cabinet alongside Mr Steady Swampy Marsh and these boys produced some stunning golf to come home the biggest winners of the day 6&5.


Last out were Laurel & Hardy otherwise known as Allen & Lloyd. This pairing is a shoe in for any match always proving hard to beat using banter to great effect to put their opponents on the back foot, Once more this  proved to be the case as they sealed a 5-0 win for the Folke boys with a tremendous 5&4 win.


A tough day on the course but credit to Cricket St Thomas - the course was not as wet as everybody feared. Also credit to our friends from Wincanton who provided great company. Captain Dinks was overjoyed to add yet another trophy to the Folke Trophy room though not enough to buy his team a drink!!
