On Sunday 2nd September, our Junior 90’s League team led by Junior Captain Joe Silcock played Foxhills away in Windlesham’s last match of the 2018 Junior 90’s League season. Foxhills have been developing a strong junior section over the last year and given their home advantage, a tough match was anticipated.
Our team comprising Joe Silcock, Ellen Yates, Leo Vorobyev, Alex Phelps, Max Reid and Ralph Coates all had to give shots to their opponents, making the teams’ task even more challenging. Joe led the team out and won his match, as did Ellen Yates (both giving 10 and 9 shots respectively to their opponents), a very good start.
Leo had to give 11 shots and lost his match to an opponent who played single figure golf! At 2:1 it was tight and too close to call. That left Alex, Max and Ralph to do the business. Alex came home winning 3:2. Max was unfortunate to lose his match on the last hole. That left Ralph.
A draw would secure a win, a loss would result in a tie. In the end, Ralph romped home with a 5:4 win, making Windlesham 4:2 winners overall. It meant that the Windlesham Junior 90’s league teams went undefeated during the 2018 season. The final league standings are yet to be published but Windlesham are in a strong position! Congratulations to Joe Silcock and a big thanks to all the juniors who took part this season.
