Tuesday was the 4th match of the seniors schedule. Minto were the guests and last year's match saw Peebles squeeze home by the narrowest of margins, while the reveres rubber down there was drawn. So a tight encounter was expected and so it proved.
Roger Scott & Tom"Ace"Litster lead us out again and returned with the early point, winning 5&3 and described by Minto's captain as a "gubbing".
Next pairing of Gordon"Wolfie"Fisher & Andy Tucker doubled the Peebles total with their decisive 3&2 victory.
Stevie Matthews formed a new partnership with Ken Davey. The big hitting pairing were cruising, as much as 4 up at one stage, and still 2 up after the 14th, they appeared to be heading for dormie 3 at the 15th, until their opponents chipped from through the green to 6". Hole lost as were the next 2 they eventually went down by 2. This match really was the one that got away.
Vic Roberts & Brian"Shooter"Robson were next out and played Minto's top pairing. Holding on to their opponents coat tails most of the way round they finally went down 2&1.
There may be no I in team, but thankfully Peebles Seniors have their own Team I, in the form of Ian's Mewett & Pemberton. Fourth run out and victory number four. On this occasion not the usual 7&5 - merely numbers of 6&4 ! Memo to Ian's for the last home match … must do better !!
Last out Jim"Chariots"Cutler & Ian Tate who accepted they had a torrid time of it, losing out 4&3. With that result the match was halved.
Onto our final home match against Torwoodlee on 15th June. That team sheet is already filled. Clearly there is a renewed vigour within the senior section, a competitive instinct which may mellow with age but never leaves us.
Well done team, see you for the pailies.
