Sunday 11th August
The finals of the Elsham Foursomes was played on Sunday with a team representing Stoke Rochford pitched against Market Rasen in one of the morning semi finals.
First game out, Adam Footitt and Matt Owen played very well to win their match 5 up over the 18 holes. Captain Paul Knapp & Steve Cullington birdied the last hole to only lose 1 down and with Steve Greenfield & Craig Hallam being 3 down it meant a close call but an aggregate 1 up win to secure their well earned place in the Final.
The Final was against Woodhall Spa who beat Thonock Park in the other semi by a score of 8 up.
Woodhall’s combined handicaps of their 6 players was 4 against a Stoke team of 24, so it was always going to be a tough ask. Despite giving their all, a combined loss of 10 down meant the runners up spot but well done to all the players for a great effort.
Thanks also to the support provided by Captain Simon Mulvey, Vice Captain James Footitt, Cate Cullington, Stewart Owen, Rod & Judy Rawson, Avis Griffin & Joan Lennard who were there all day.
