Wednesday came on the back of Hurricane Ophelia and Peebles stormed into North Berwick for our last match of the season, and blew them away.
With Tom"Ace"Litster unavailable Roger Scott partnered Ian Tate in the first match off against the home teams captain & seniors convenor. My use of the word obscene has been limited to my professional career and a certain publications squad! However their 9&7 victory can't be described any other way. What a start.
Next to tee it up - Andy Tucker & Jim"Chariots"Cutler. A solid start from Jim was then matched by Andy as they went into the turn 4up. Back nine saw a stronger showing form the home pair, however these likely lads came in 2up.
Brain"Shooter"Robson with Andy"H"Nelson suffered something of a battering form their opposition. While the eye of the storm covered the rest of our team, they got caught on the wall, spinning out to a 5&4 loss.
Next at the first - Team Peebles very own secret weapon. Brain"RAPTOR"Taylor & George"Phaser"Cunningham were the captains pick and how they rewarded his confidence. Dovetailing perfectly they kept a seasoned partnership at bay. Winners 2&, and with it brought home our prize, a Team Peebles victory.
Team Ian's had been cast asunder, with only Ian Mewett available for this fixture. So it was an ideal opportunity for Stevie Matthews to pair up and bask in some of their glory. Nip & tuck till the 7th, there the Peebles pair pulled clear and secured the point with a par on the 16th to win 4&2.
Final two were Sam Walker & David Barr. They were a much fancied pairing to bring home the points and with it secure our match victory. 2 up at the turn, and cruising, that plan was on course. Then dual registered Drew"AC/DC"Lowe hit a fantastic run of form over the back 9, including a birdie at the 16th. Our lads lost out 2&1.
So a superb away victory 4&2, condemning last season's loss to the record book trash can, and mirroring our home victory 5&1.
Fantastic result guys. So proud of today's team and all 26 who have committed and contributed to this seasons successful seniors campaign. Roll on 2018 !!
