Our third match of the year took place at Canvey Island versus Castle Point on the river estuary. The weather was good and we were looked after well by our hosts. The course was not long and most of the difficulties seemed to be when you went too long with your shots, it was a course for those with ability to pick their way around without necessarily using the “big stick” all the time. Needless to say that was no good for me!! The results were:
Brian Cowie & Ken Pattenden lost to Ron Watson & Dennis Hollington 4/3
Gavin Grove & Dug Godfrey lost to Roy Pickard & Bill Assenheim 5/4
Bill Crozier & Peter Quelch won against Roy Cook & Paul Whittle 2/1
Colin Puddephatt & Ivor Blunden lost to Ray Hodgson & Ken Marshall 4/3
Bryan Foster & Alan Smith finished all square with John Smith & Pat O’Brien
Ron Humphrey & Roy Lowe lost to Terry Durrant & George Middleton
Resulting in a 41/2 to 11/2 victory for the home team.
I maintained my 100% loss record. Our record this far is played 3 won 2 lost 1.
Individual matches are played 18 won 10 lost 7 halved 1.
