First Loss as Peebles Defeated @ Gencorse

Last season saw Peebles trounce Glencorse at home. A 6-0 whitewash. Clearly the result had stung the men from Penicuik. Retribution was sought and on Tuesday last that's what they achieved, by playing some outstanding golf on their home course.

First out Andy"H"Nelson and Gordon"Wolfie"Fisher were in their own words hammered 6&5. A sad end to the season for Gordon playing his last game before commitments with his one man show at the festival and then seasonal tour to land of the white cloud. On a serious note thanks for all your support "Wolfie".

Next out Brian"Shoter"Robson and Sandy Wood. Two down after 3 holes, to birdies, the score appeared almost to be on the card before they tee'd off. Despite Brian having a net 64 the pair still succumbed 4&3.

Off out third Stevie Matthews & Jim"Chariots"Cutler. A close match - cut and thrust - with no more than a hole in it until the 14th, the "stooriefits" recorded a 3&2 victory. The match was a fantastic and sporting competition, which inspired a cumulative score form the 2 pairs of 3 under par.

That was however the highlight of the day for Team Peebles.

George Cunningham & Sam Walker went down 3&2. Then Ken Davey returning to his old course playing alongside David Barr lost out to their opponents 2&1.

Even Team Ian's - Mewit & Pemberton were unable to curb the course or their opponents and for the first time this year lost a match - the numbers on the board 2&1.

So the Penicuik Huntsmen held the whip hand, galloping to a winning 5-1.

A wee setback for the season, yes, but by no means a disaster.

Next outing this Thursday at West Linton, our Derby game. Another challenge playing a home team who again will be desperate to reverse the beating they took at Peebles last year.

See you there.
