Ciren seniors end their season on a high
6:00am Saturday 5th October 2013 in Sport
CIRENCESTER ended their season on a high with a 4-3 victory at home to Minchinhampton.
Seniors captain David Findlay and John Morris got things going winning the opening match by 3&2 and Geoff Southwell and Ron Carroll increased Cirencester's lead with a handsome 4&2 win.
The next two matches were won narrowly by Minchinhampton to tie the scores at 2-2 before an important win came with Patrick Moylan and Mike Brown's 4&3 win proving crucial as the last two matches were halved.
It was a different story earlier in the week as Ciren lost their away tie with the same opposition 6-1.
Cirencester were unable to get to grips with the Cherington course at Minchinhampton and went down to a heavy defeat.
The visitors won the opening match with Graham Morgan playing very well with his partner Paul Horrell to come home 3&2, but that was it as far as Cirencester were concerned even though Mike Staples and John Hartley took their opponents David Warden and Peter Morse to the last hole.
The best of Minchinhampton's wins were by the pairing of Terry Dwight and Norman Garrett who won 5&4 and David Harley and Anthony Fisher who strolled home by 6&4.
The annual end of season team competition took place on September 19 at Chipping Norton, where 60 players took part in the golf before dinner and prize giving.
An imaginative Bowmaker scoring system threw up threw teams with an identical score of 90 points, with the scores on the back nine holes settling the outcome for first place in favour of the quartet of seniors vice Captain, Clive Bennett, Ron Carroll, Rodney Williams and Mike Staples.
In second place came Frank Hilton, Evan Jarrett, Robert Tweedale and Roy Lipscombe, with the third placed team comprising of Andy Leith, Tony Jafrate, Tony Gattrell and John Anderson.
