Stone seniors have recently played two matches , both at home.
On Thursday 3 July we entertained Barlaston in a re-scheduled fixture ..
The match was played in excellent weather , the course was described as a credit to the club by the captains opponents with the fairways being described as like a carpet and the greens excellent. Unfortunately I think the captain played as if wearing his carpet slippers and was of little help to his partner on the day.
However the team in general was in excellent form and achieved a victory by 5 – 3.
As usual the after match meal was enjoyed by all and the close relationship enjoyed by the two clubs continues.
On Wednesday 9 July we entertained my old club Uttoxeter, always a difficult fixture !! On this occasion made all the more difficult by my failing to pick the correct number of players for the event. Totally my fault , another senior moment !!, I apologise to the team .
Two Uttoxeter players kindly agreed to toss a coin , one to represent Stone and one Uttoxeter. Even with the help of a Uttoxeter player we were unable to overcome and succumbed by 3 – 5.
Again Uttoxeter were very complimentary as to the condition of the course and also the after match meal.
