A sad end to our Mail on Sunday Men's team which had reached the Quarter-Finals stage and were due to play on Monday 23rd September at Worsley Park in Manchester. After a practice round the day before when the course was barely playable the heavens subsequently opened and the course was declared unplayable which it most certainly was.  With no chance of play it was decided to follow the rules of the competition and so there was a form of countback from the results of previous rounds and needless to say we were declared the losers. Apparently this was only the second time in 19 years that the rule has had to be invoked What a long way to go for such a disappointment but well done to the team for getting further in the competition than ever before.
