TSU Week 1

On what started out a windy but sunny evening turned dramatically into a very cold windy Wednesday night in the men's team 1st game of the season at a tough Cleveland links course.
Historically it's never our best course to travel too but the scratch section kicked us under way with No.2 Wayne Hewitt winning his tight match. Form player Paul King remembered not to leave his putter in the boot and used it to great effect adding to the points total with his win. Wins also foll...owed in the scratch section with wins from Steve Ridley & Craig Wren. The handicap section unfortunately had a bad night at the office with only Adam Peart winning giving bishop 10 points.

Cleveland 14 Bishop Auckland 10

Despite the defeat 10 points at Cleveland is considered a good result, well done to the winners and commiserations to the losers.
