Match Report, Charminster (Home) 17 July

Having been soundly thrashed 6:0 in the away fixture there was a certain amount of trepidation in the Folke team that gathered in the clubhouse prior to the game. With the passing of another rain free week, the brown fairways contrasted with the verdant greens that had been well tended by Andy and were in excellent shape.  The sky was somewhat grey as the teams set out but this greyness was not reflected in the usual banter that is always a feature when we get together with the Charminster boys.  There were some fine examples of putting skills on display especially on the sixth where a large frog had taken refuge in the cup (probably the safest place to hide) but was soon returned to the hedgerow by George. Back in the clubhouse the teams reassembled for a Lisa special lunch (not toad-in-the hole but plaice, chips and peas) and after the vote of thanks to Lisa, Steve, Andy and the Centre Staff, Charminster captain John Maddocks announced the result to be a 6:0 win for Folke.

Honours even and a big thank-you to John and the Charrminster Team for  a very friendly and enjoyable day.

On a warm but breezy day we all set out to do battle with the team from Cannington, who were out to reverse a 5½ :½   score line at Folke two weeks earlier, and for a couple of hours it looked like they might do it. But fortunes changed and the Folke team fought back and managed to halve the match, and maintain our very successful run of matches. The match was followed by a fantastic Ham salad and Lemon meringue pie and cream.  Well done to the whole of my team and big thank-you to our friends from Cannington.
