Tuesday saw Peebles Seniors commence their 2017 campaign with a 5 - 1 defeat of North Berwick.
Andy Tucker & Ian Tate set the tone with an excellent opening partnership 4&3 victory over the visitor captain's pairing. This was replicated by Roger Scott & Jim"On Fire"CUTLER, as described by partner & opposition, the latter conceding 4 birdie putts such was this maestro's approach play.
Stevie Matthews & Brian"Shooter McGavin"ROBSON, so dubbed for his putting from anywhere on the green, then backed up with 5&4 to add to the team points pot. Ians, Pemberton & Mewett kept our momentum going through the 4th tie winning 1 up to achieve another "W". The fifth point came courtesy of new partnership Alan Jackson & George Cunningham, coming home 2&1.
Special mention to Gordon Fisher - a late replacement, and in the absence of his playing partner, now a lone wolf. Gordon single handily held off his opposition pairing, only succumbing on the 17th.
Superb effort gentlemen, we are all set fair for the season. Next outing 11th May, the team sheet for which is already full. This is followed by a home match Thursday 18th May - that fixture team sheet will go up on our notice board on the 4th.
Finally match reserves, as clearly evidenced today, are a key aspect of the seniors squad. If you are not immediately in the team, yet still able to play - and potentially at short notice - please add your names & contact details to the bottom of the list.
