Whitley Bay 9 – Hexham 3
On a bright day we entertained Hexham Seniors one of the likely teams to be in with a chance of winning the league. Ian Soulsby and Terry Smith had a very tough match against the very good Hexham Capt.
The Hexham Capt just managed to have the final answer in the win for them.
Forster Holloway (Vice Capt) and Harry Bell took the honours on the 18th in what was a hard fought match.
Angus Clementson and John Wymer were up and down in a match which they felt they should have won but ended up all square for a halve. Well we can not win them all can we.
Chris Lennie and Jim Douglas lived up to my expectations and carved a 2 – 1 win in a hard fought game.
The two stalwarts of the team Tony Hood and John Suggate recorded an much warranted result of 4 – 3 just when we needed a big push to see us over the line.
Debutant John Waterston and Mick Doxford came home with an 3 – 2 result to bring us to 9 – 3 winners.
This also raises the bar on what we can achieve this season. The next two games are at home so with two decent results we should be sitting near the top of the league.
This is our best result against Hexham for a few seasons.
To the team I say thank you and keep up the good work. I hope to be back playing and pushing for a slot in a few weeks.
Whitley Bay 12 – Westerhope 0
An excellent result yesterday against Westerhope. Sweet revenge for last year. We paid them back in full winning 12 – 0. The team was Captained by Forster and well supported by all players. Him and Harry set the ball rolling with a excellent 6 & 5 win.
All the players played their part against a very strong Westerhope team who were second in the league until they met us.
Well done to all and long may it continue.
Ponteland 9 – Whitley Bay 3
Ian reported a difficult day for our team who struggled to read the greens. They were very fast and from a different world to Whitley Bays. George Siemanzco and Barty Coe won their match. Angus Clementson and Mick Doxford gained a half. I can only add to what Ian and Forster reported that it was a good day played in a friendly manner. That the result was out weighed by the effort put in by the whole team. Many thanks to you all.
Tynemouth 7 – Whitley Bay 5
Our visit to our nearest rivals resulted in a victory to our hostes.
The team was Captained by Forster Holloway on the day and was aided by Harry Bell in the first match and they got us off to a flier with the perfect win 1up.
Tony Hood and John Suggate kept up their impressive record with a 3 – 1 win. Both players showed that they are a hard pair to beat.
Ian Soulsby (Vice Capt) and Terry Smith came within a whisker of getting two points but in the end had to settle for a hard fought halve.
The other matches involved Frank Elliott, Gordon Robinson, Chris Lennie, Jim Douglas, John Wymer and Keith Williamson and all finished in tight affairs and with a little more luck on the greens would have given us at least a drawn match.
Some long lucky puts from Tynemouth players sealed our fate.
Many Thanks to all the team from me Len Renham Senior Team Captain.
Fourteen of us rolled up on Bank Holiday Monday 29th May and Question Master Harry Bell had all the answers with 21 points on the back nine and scooped up the sweep with a total of 36 points. Bob Ackinclose also with 36 points came second and Syd Davison returned to form and took third place with 35 points.
We look forward to seeing you on Monday.
