The Colts Team had a disappointing home result on Saturday (5th September) at South Beds GC, against a very strong Essex Colts team who have now secured the 2009 league title with this win.
Again, Bedfordshire struggled with team selection having 5 potential players unavailable for selection with fixture clashes. However, there are positives. Connor Boyle looks a real prospect for next season & has fitted in very well at Colt level at only 16 years old. Connor was unlucky not to open his account on the day losing both his foursome match with Chris Sweetnam & his singles game playing well up the order, on the 18th green. Well done Connor, great attitude.
The score line however does flatter Essex with 5 games being decided on the 18th and result could easily have been 8-4 to Essex. Tom Munkley appears to have established himself at this level & secured our only win of the match with a solid 2/1 victory over Adam Morris ex Bath University Golf Team player - well done Tom. Rob Sutton, as always played very solid golf & put in a fighting performance in gaining a halved game. Matt Oborne played very well eventually losing on the 18th being under par for his round.
I would like to thank all the players who committed to this fixture & we now move on to our TIP programme & development plan for 2010.
