After winning promotion to Division One of the Lincolnshire League for this year, Greetham Valley’s Second Team found their first match at home to be a very tough welcome to the division when they came up against a strong Sleaford side.
The morning started off in difficult enough circumstances, as one player dropped out with just thirty minutes to go before the start of the match. Team Captain Alan Bennett was seen with gritted teeth driving a buggy out onto the course desperately trying to find another player.
Despite some strong performances, the home team went down three and a half to two and a half. Alan said that with three of the team in for their first match with the second team, he feels that they can only get stronger as the year progresses. Results:
George Grant / Ryan Tarrant lost 3+2; Paul Clegg / Peter Dickinson won 1 up; Simon Bateman / Adam Clegg lost 1 down; Alan Bennett / Nick Cunnington won 1 up; Neil Crees / Fraser Denholm lost 4+2; Dave Copley / James Horwood halved.
