Since the last report the Wishaw Seniors have played another 4 matches, winning all 4 in some style.
Thursday 24th May – Darnford (H)
We won this match by a whitewash, a massive 7 – 0, and every player in the team contributed to a memorable result. This was an extremley hot day, unusual for this summer! The heat, no doubt, contributed to one of the opposition players, Mike Potts, collapsing in the dressing room after the match. I am pleased to report that following hospital treatment, Mike is now fully recovered and eager to resume playing for Darnford.
Thursday 31st May – Calderfields (H)
Mike Bill stood in as Captain for this match which we won 7 – 2. Always a difficult side to play, our team did really well to get this result.
Thursday 7th June – Darnford (A)
Another victory and its always nice to beat the opposition on their home course. An impressive win of 5.5 – 1.5. We were lucky with the weather as the forecast was pretty grim for this day, but we escaped with a light soaking just a few holes from the finish.
Thursday 14th June – Widney Manor (H)
A closely contested match which we won 3.5 – 2.5. Another enjoyable day played in a friendly and competitive atmosphere.
The course at Wishaw is looking extremely good, especially in view of the adverse weather conditions we have experienced lately. Also I would like to compliment the catering staff at Wishaw who have provided us with an excellent service, first class meals and generous portions.
We have played a total of ten inter club matches to date, winning seven and losing three. An impressive performance! The next match is Tuesday 19th June, Calderfields away. Historically, we always have problems playing this course, but you never know, watch this space.
Well Done Wishaw Seniors Team – Keep it up!!
Pete Spencer, Seniors Captain
