The Captain’s Blog (No7) – Tess Mann

A few more match results from the Men’s Team in the Hadrian League.

Wednesday, 5th July away to Newbiggin where we lost 11-1. I think we’ll just leave Newbiggin by the Sea, by the sea and call it a one off. I just hope the team enjoyed their trip to the seaside!

Monday, 10th July at home so Slaley Hall and a 7-5 win. Firstly a big welcome to Wayne McCulloch to the team. He has played some good golf this season and deserves his place on the team. He played No6 on the team and came away with a point, which was the winning point in our 7-5 win. He was over the moon – well-done mate!!  Chris Bowman, Gavin Jobe and Ryan Clark were on top form with 2 points each. A great win against a team that has been playing really well.

Wednesday, 19th July away to Newcastle United and a 12-0 loss. Oh Well when you come up against the best team in the league and they have only dropped 2 points all season at home, what can you do? Just go out and enjoy the game! The lads did just that and they all gave 100%.

Wednesday, 26th July at home to Bellingham. What do you do when you have just been beaten 12-0 … you go out and win 12-0!!! Yes 12-0!!! How about that lads, all I can say is fantastic! I skipped up the road to my car after I left the club and I would like to say a big thank you to all the team for making an old man happy. Me and the lads would also like to say big congratulations to Ryan and his wife on the arrival of their baby boy. (You weren’t missed) !!!!

Men’s Club Championship. I was delighted to see my Vice Captain, Chris Bowman, win the Club Championship. And very well done Lee Thompson for giving him a great game. Also well done to Dickie Rutherford for becoming the old man’s champion. A great win and well done Geordie Faulder for the tight match in the final.

Next Sunday 6th August is my Captain’s Charity Day, so let’s make all the kids happy in ward 14 of the RVI. Enjoy your day. Happy golfing ……. Tess Mann
