I’m again sorry to have to start this update on a sad note. You may or may not be aware of the death of one of our most long standing members, Roger Gregory. Roger was a member of LGC for over 56 years. He served as Club Captain in 1997 and was Club President in 2010. Roger as I remember him was a very nice gent, who always had a smile and a word for all of us whom he came into contact with. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this sad time.
On Friday the 28th September we saw the long awaited match, Ladies v Seniors for the Pink/Blue Ribbon – The Garner Trophy. This event was enjoyed by all and resulted in a win for the Senior Gents by 4 – 1. Thanks to our Lady Captain, Lynne who managed to get the game back into our Club Fixtures. We look forward to next year’s return match and hope it gets well supported.
We have only two Club matches left for 2018, Astbury away on Friday 5th October and Congleton at home on Monday 8th October. In addition to these we have our Fred Carr Trophy on Friday 12th October. Our season finishes on Friday 7th December with our Christmas Party and Golf (weather permitting). Please make a note in your diaries Gents and try and support if you can.
It’s great to see the return of John Isaacs to golf after his operation. “John, they may have taken a part from you, but they haven’t taken your sense of humour.” Just keep it going John.
Finally our Seniors AGM is on the 7th November (Time to be confirmed). Please try to attend and have your say. It is important.
Thanks Gents – Your Seniors Captain, Ken Ratcliffe.
