The semi final of The Gammon took place between St Enodoc and Perranporth at Looe on Sunday. Perranporth have had a monopoly on this coveted trophy for many years and we were unfortunate to be runners up in last year’s final. Needless to say the bit was between our teeth! Team players, caddies and supporters all desperate for the win and another bite of the cherry at the final in September. After six holes we were up or level in all matches, the team was focussed. The news of early wins on the 12th and 15th was filtered through to the remaining players by Captain on the day Carole Waights. Three matches finished on the 16th, one on the 17th and two on the 18th. Special mention must go to Bev Vann’s bunker shot to 2ft and Kira Barnes’ Eagle both on the last hole. A resounding 6-1 win means we continue our mission. We meet Falmouth (who beat Newquay) in the final. This will be played at Trevose at 1130 on Sunday 18th September. We really hope many of you will come to support us in our quest to hold this trophy again. Thank you to Looe for the use of the course, the spotters and the delicious meal after and of course to Perranporth who were extremely gracious in defeat. CHK
