B Team v Leamington

Match result: Lutterworth   3 ½       Leamington   2 ½

Lots of reputations were at stake in this match.  It was a case of “The Irresistible Force against the Immovable Object” in a golf match.   When our player of the year for 2017, Neville, (the irresistible force) heard he was paired with champion ‘subs collector’, Lawrence, (the immovable object) he was very confident that the pairing would deliver a win for the team.  At the 5th hole and 3 down, Neville was having second thoughts.  Showing the spirit and resolve of a POTY he ‘dug in’ and by the 15th the pair edged into the lead.  Ever humble, Lawrence, gives all the credit to Neville for the turnaround, but did say he played well on the last 4 holes.  When asked whether his purple patch on the last 4 holes secured a victory, he said it more like a ‘light pinkish’ patch.   In the 2nd pairing of Ian and Robin, the report is even more of a nightmare  –  5 down on the 10th.  Neither player wants to take credit for the comeback, but they succeeded in gaining a half, and they said the game was played in the best of spirits and was thoroughly enjoyable .  Finally, a rather pedestrian comeback from Lyn and Martyn (because they were my bankers to win). They were also 3 down but thankfully secured a half – well done to them as well.

A great result and a big thank you to the team and Hugh McClean for his leadership on the night.

B Team kick off the season with a win.

B Team v Leamington

With the course being closed on Tuesday, there was more than a small chance that this match might get cancelled if it continued to rain overnight.  Fortunately, the rain stopped and the Leamington team turned up early and ready for action.  It was a day when some big wins were achieved by the B Team pairs.  Martyn and Mark put an early marker down by posting a solid 3  & 2 win as the first pairing out.   Neville & Kevin, and Bill & Graham, confidently thought they would post the best scores of the day, but were outclassed by Chris & Gareth with their 6 & 5 victory – clearly making an early statement for 2018 Player Of The Year.   Lawrence kept up his almost perfect record of beating everyone to the honour of collecting the subs  – although, rumour has it that he lost the plot by going on a personal purple patch on the last 3 to 4 holes to help secure an honourable half for himself and Lyn.  Finally a thank you for Ben Benoist for patiently being available as ‘Firm Reserve’ .

The results was : Lutterworth   5 ½       Leamington   ½

Mixed fortunes for Lutterworth Men in the Taskers

Lutterworth C went down fighting at a soggy Kirby Muxloe Course by 4.5 /  2.5. The match was played in difficult conditions with steady drizzle throughout, and three temporary greens in use. Special mention is made of Alan Brennan and Mick Shilcock who won their matches and Nigel Pearce who secured a half after being dormie two down. The team now transfer to the subsidiary Taskers Plate competition.

Lutterworth B traveled to Mickleover in Derbyshire. The weather was kind as the course was wet. Bill Stubbins, Phil Harbord, Hugh McClean all Lyn Griffiths all secured wins. Martyn Walker halved his match. Match Result 4 1/2 – 2 1/2. Lutterworth progress to round 2 and have been drawn away to Ashbourne.

Taskers Trophy Round 1 v Rothley

With three mens teams entered this year for the Taskers Trophy, Lutterworth A were the first of these teams to play with the opponents being one of the teams from local county rivals Rothley Park.

With the match being played at Lutterworth just prior to the Easter downpours, the course just about stayed playable but by the end the final two matches were contending with the greens becoming flooded.

In the end Lutterworth secured a relatively comfortable win by 5 matches to 2 with a surprising loss by the normally reliable Chris Wormleighton and Pete Kalym losing on the final green.  The five winners were George Thomson, Chris Bowman, Andy Cull, Alex Scott and Allan SImmonds.

In the next match the team are away to a yet to be determined opponent and we have set the tone for the other Lutterworth teams who, hopefully, are both playing on the 8th April.

Lutterworth C Team News

Following a successful warm up match last Wednesday against the Lutterworth Seniors, the C Team opened their season yesterday afternoon with a drawn match at home to Forest Hill, with three matches won and three lost. The Forest Hill team were full of praise for the condition of our course, particularly given the heavy rain overnight on Tuesday and the downpour before we teed off yesterday.
