Result Belton 3.5 Radcliffe 2.5
The first match of the season was a friendly against Radcliffe playing off handicaps. Conditions were very favourable, warm and not very windy. The course was in good condition for this time of the year, this format was an eye opener to some of the players with some pairs having to give up to 15 shots. The result was a Belton Park win, results were:
Nigel Gibson & Ged O’Reilly won 3&1
Spike Carr & Bob Chapple won 2up
Tony Gleave & Scott Allison lost 2&1
Dale Maplethorpe & Andy Trotter halved
Seymour Bailey & Dean Scott lost 3&1
Finally to win the game for Belton, Ken Kane & Chris Mousley won 6&4.
A good start to the season with the first league match not until end of April which will give us time to get prepared and also with something to build on.
