SRGC V's Thorney Lakes Golf Club Lakes
On Saturday 1st June, the Social team played their latest fixture of the season at Thorney Lakes. The match was again well supported with 9 pairs per side taking part. Everyone enjoyed a cooked breakfast before the match teed off in warm, pleasant conditions.
It turned out to be a very close fought match, and the final score was a narrow 5-4 win to Stoke Rochford. Individual match details below:
Simon Mulvey / David Bailey won

Adam Footitt / Pete Smith lost

Thorney Lakes captain Russ Harris has very kindly donated a trophy to be used for this fixture. So it has been agreed that the team that wins the most points over the 2 matches wins the “Stoke - Lakes” trophy that year.
With Stoke winning the home fixture 7-2 earlier in the season, the overall score this year was 12-6 to Stoke Rochford.
As always the match was played in the right spirit, and an enjoyable day was had by all! We look forward to welcoming Russ and his team back to Stoke Rochford next season.
Well done to our fantastic Social Team Captain Tom Greenfield who organises everyone so well.
