19th August 2017
The Millbrook: Mark Abbott, Aiden Abbott, Colin Jordan, Paul Kitching, Jack Hawksby
Northampton: Lewis White, Craig Groom, Ross Skidmore, Andy Carter, Dean Roberts
The Millbrook Golf Club welcomed the Team from Northampton Golf Club on a chilly but bright morning to The Millbrook Golf Club in Bedfordshire.
The course was in great condition with the greens running true and at a steady pace. The Match was close over the front nine, with The Millbrook up in 3, all square in one and down in 1, the first three games were all very close with no more than a hole either way.
Over the back nine, matches four and five looked likely to go the way of the Millbrook with Paul Kitching and Jack Hawksby running out winners 3 and 2 and 2 and 1 respectively. The front three matches however were a lot closer and were all destined to go down to the 18th hole. Mark Abbott (The Millbrook) winning 2 up in a closely fought match with Lewis White, Craig Groom (Northampton) running out a winner over 14 year old Aiden Abbott, The Middle match between Colin Jordan (The Millbrook) and Ross Skidmore (Northampton) looked likely to go to Ross Skidmore, with Ross 2 up after the 14th, however Colin fought his way back over the last four holes eventually winning 2 up giving The Millbrook a 4 to 1 Winning Margin.
Great golf played by both teams.
Good Luck to The Millbrook in the next round
