St. Enodoc Golf Club - First Bolitho Shield of 2013 for the Academy

The Junior Academy played at Killiow in their first match in the County Bolitho Shield on Sunday 30th June and it was always going to be a testing fixture.  Playing a course for the first time and also having to give "quite a few shots" to players on their own track would indeed be a new experience to all the players. Joe Combellack, giving 7 shots, led the way taking his match to the 18th, unfortunately he lost a ball on the final hole to halve his match with Jamie Crocker. Junior Captain Sam Jarvis, giving 6 shots, played Ben Cousins surprisingly lost 5 & 4. Former Junior Captain Jake Sanders, giving 4 shots to James Trew,  won his match 6 & 5. Mark Turner, giving 7 shots had an excellent 4 & 3 win against Carlen Williams. The final two matches were indeed close encounters with Ryan Perring, giving 7 shots taking on Freddie Norris and Rhiannon Rich, giving 5 shots to Ross Thomas. Both matches were settled on the 18th with the home players winning 1 up. Although the final result meant defeat with the final score reading St. Enodoc 2.5 Killiow 3.5 there were many positives.
