Out fifth was Merv Jennings (the swerve) & Dave Colohan (no 1 Liverpool fanatic) in a topsy turvy match just edging it winning 2 & 1.


Out in the J Harring Trophy were ever reliable Simon Lloyd (Leaky Plumber)& George[Senior CHAMPION]  Taylor coming in with the best result and winning tote with a superb 5 & 4 win.


My thanks to Wincanton Golf Club, and Ed and his team, great food afterwards great hospitality.  Match result 2 ½ - 2 ½ points wise 11 points Folke, 8 points Wincanton.  Folke now wait on Long Sutton, depending on results if we have won the league or not, guaranteed runners up at least.



Thanks to all my players on the day before the club champs.

            Match Report


Wincanton (Away)  - 1 September


“The final Match”


Our final 3 counties league  match of the season at Wincanton was always going to be a tough cookie to crack.  With the league finally balanced Folke Golf Club needed something spectacular, After meeting up in the club house with the usual banter flying about on a calm dry day (which makes a change) a fine golfing display was on the cards.


Out first was Darren Marsh (no 1 Yeovil fan, not! Villa) & Mark Maguire (senior PC) played superb golf between them, warming up for the club champs coming in with a 3 & 2 win.


Out second was Daniel Tuffin (I hit it a long way) and Craig Pitcher (Pikey bandit. Captain Hink’s banker of the day but unfortunately he got that one wrong and  they went down 2 & 1.


Out third was Martin Blatchford (Jet setter) I need to go out .1 for new handicap not to be. Blatchford & Kevin Ring (washing machine technician) had another close game but cameg in short going down by 2 down.


Out fourth was Captain Dinker the leader & Tony Smith (Stuart Cink look alike) in a hard fought match all the way around Birdie golf was the word of the day and what a game it was with Ed Gale & Pete Williams they manage to get a good half.


Note: - End of an Era!!
