Successful Weekend for GC Handicap Teams

April 29th 2019

The clubs two GC Handicap teams were both in league action last weekend. Both teams were competing away at Nailsea on the Saturday. The strong winds, low temperature, rain and lawns with standing water initially made for difficult playing conditions. The North East Division team were up against a very strong home team. Despite being 4-0 down after the first round of games the team fought back to win 11-9. The team members were Miriam Bolger, Elaine Morrison, Mary Bertin, Pete Riley, Gordon Cottis and Tony Curson. The clubs Central Division team, consisting of Folke Pope, Jennie Pope, Sue Andrew, Philip de Glanville, Howard Grove and Bob Hart had a close tussle all the way through their match. The result was a 10-10 draw. On the Sunday the same Central team entertained Taunton Deane at the Rec. After the mornings play Bath had a slender lead but despite their exertions the previous day pulled away in the afternoon games for a commanding win 13.5 – 6.5.
