Seniors lose away at the Northam Burrows

Published: 11th September 2013

The return match against Royal North Devon meant another disappointment for the Seniors on Friday, 06 September. The coveted Johnny Fallon Driver was retained by the hosts for another year when the Saints lost 6 – 2 on the oldest course in England at Westward Ho ! Whilst the forecast rain could be seen circling the area, the match was played in benign conditions, which combined with the opposition, still proved rather too challenging for most of the visitors. The rain did arrive but only when the teams were tucking in to their lamb shanks ! Once again, Nigel Thomas won the wine for nearest the pin, prompting envious mutterings about his alcoholic health as a consequence of the accuracy of his irons !
