Peebles fall at final hurdle

The Peebles team travelled to the West Course at North Berwick for the final match knowing that a victory would secure an unbeaten record this season. Things however did not go according to plan. Peebles won 5-1 in the opening encounter of the season at home but playing links golf gave the hosts a huge advantage.

The visitors lost the first 3 games with Andy Tucker and Neil Byers going down 5&3, Roger Scott and Ewan Morton losing 4&3 and David Wright and Sam Walker losing on the 16th by 3&2.

Vic Roberts and Mike Clay stopped the rot and won impressively by 5&3. In game 5, Les More and Ian Mewett had a very close encounter and managed an honourable half. However, North Berwick finished the match strongly and Jim Dickson and George Cunningham suffered a 6&4 reversal.

The final match result was North Berwick 4 and a half : Peebles 1 and a half.

Despite not being able to round things off in style, it has been a fantastic season for the Peebles Seniors. They have won 8 matches, halved one match and lost one match. A huge thank you to the 24 players who have represented the team this season. We've had a lot of fun!
