THE winter league first round of the matchplay stages was played last Saturday along with a stableford competition for the non winter league players.
In the main matchplay knockout there were a few shock results; the biggest shock of the day was the reigning winter league champions Forrest and Conway losing to Daniel Flynn who played on his own as his playing partner Scott Findlay was unavailable, congratulations to Daniel who won the match on the first extra hole.
The top pair in the stableford competition played over seven weeks Dennison and Hull lost to club professional Matthew Hearne and club captain Gwyn Scale with Mark Summons and Tristan Carlston beating RJ Roberts and assistant pro Elliot Harding with an excellent win by Lyndon Brown and Shaun Dyson who gave Simon Holloway and Andrew Jones a shed full of shots.
