The hottest day of the year so far saw Surrey National host the current league title holders Farleigh in the latest round of the Surrey Hills league. Always going to be a tough day, especially as Farleigh were on the back of recently taking 18points overall from Surrey Downs. Shots were came mostly our way, our handicaps totalled 125-ish, and Farleigh’s 66-ish, but we all had to play a solid game and so it proved. The bigger tests will come in our away performances, but we’ve maintained a 100% home record.. we’ve parked the bus.
Captain Sean’s Match Report:
So before the match I said I would be happy to maintain our home win record, given Farleigh where last year’s champions. As it happened we came away with 8 points – Yippee!! It was a great day and they were definitely no push over, but not a match lost. I am starting the think we could have a chance of winning this year – we still have most of the away matches to play which is always a tougher test, but we can safely say that half way through we now have as good a chance as any.
