Thursday was our third home fixture, as we entertained Broomieknowe. The visitors arrived super sharp, but clearly not sharp enough to deny Peebles a superb 4½ to 1½ victory.
First out Roger Scott with team debutant and last minute reserve Brian Taylor, who secured an early lead triumphing 2&1. An excellent start to Brain's seniors career.
In the week when our senior stableford result proved age is never a restriction, the next points were secured by Peebles very own team "septuagenarian" of Jim Cutler & "Flash" Gordon Fisher. Playing against the visiting captain they secured a 3&2 victory and with it words of commendation in his post match address. A super pairing and very positive selection option for our future matches.
Stevie Matthews & Ian Tate were on their game from the start, quickly running up a two hole lead, doubled at the 10th and eventually running out 6&4 winners to a battling but on the day over par Broomiknowe partnership.
Brian Rosbon & another debutant Ken Davey then ran up an early 3 hole lead over the front 9. However their opposition stormed back with a gross 34 on the back 9 including a birdie at the 18th, to half the match, thereby achieving a half point for each pair. However that critical fraction secured the result.
Tie 5 paired David Barr & Sam Walker played against what turned out to be a formidable Broomiknowe pairing. Despite Sam scoring 20 stableford points on the first 8 holes they still went down 5&4.
That left the Ian's to continue their outstanding form this season - 3 matches played , 3 points recorded, this week 7&5 to the good.
Still early days in our season, but so satisfying to be here with stats of 3 for 0. Well done team.
Next "scalp" Minto on the 30th.
That team list match filled very swiftly, but please if available identify yourself as a reserve, we went through 5 extras to get our full compliment for today's contest so every chance you'll be called up.
