The scratch team had 2 games over the last 3 weeks with a break for the bank holiday. First, we played a strong Horsforth side at home with the team of Tom Hough, Jason Newton and Matthew Beedle. A tough match against an opponent who had a bogey free round saw Tom lose convincingly 7&5. Jason played a great match, unfortunately just missing out 2&1 to a very strong opponent. A solid display from Matthew saw a 3&2 victory but unfortunately a  4 -2 loss overall. Last Monday we played Headingley away with the same team of Tom Hough, Matthew Beedle and Jason Newton. Tom was out first and, after a bad first hole, turned it around to play steady and win the match 3&1. Second out saw Matthew play another solid game to win the match 2 and 1. Last out was Jason who again played against a strong opponent and despite being under par, saw his opponent birdie 2 of the last 3 to lose 1 down.  A decent start for the scratch team sees them in third place, 2 points behind first after 3 games. Next week a local derby against Darrington and looking to build on their start. We also have our first knockout match on Friday night against Low Laithes away. All support is welcome as always and hope to see you down to support the lads. Thanks
