This week saw 3 members of Leek Golf Club represent the County Seniors team against a strong Worcestershire side at the testing North Worcestershire Golf Club.
Club Captain Dave Gallimore (4 h’cap) was partnered with club colleague Ross Martin (5 h’cap) for the morning foursomes and managed to squeeze home in a very tight match to take victory. Duncan Stott (h’cap 2) led from the front playing with Dave Glibborn from Beau Desert Golf Club and won at the last hole after his opponents 3 putted the final green.
Staffordshire held a 5 – 1 lead going into the afternoon fourballs.
The successful morning pairing of Gallimore/Martin played well in the afternoon but lost to a resurgent Worcestershire team 4 &3 whilst Stott, now partnered with Keith Andrews again won on the last hole which Andrews had managed to birdie. The Staffordshire team held on to halve the afternoon fourballs resulting in an overall score of 11-7 in favour of the away team.
Dave Gallimore and Ross Martin have been selected to play at Wergs Golf Club next week in the final match of the season against Northamptonshire Seniors. Unfortunately for Staffordshire Stott has to return to work and is not available for selection.
