GC league v High Wycombe 26 May 2018 1st GC League match

We played our first League Fixture yesterday at High Wycombe, a very strong side.

The result was a convincing 61/2 to 11/2 win for High Wycombe.

However, we had two games go to the 13th hoop, and one game drawn. So overall, not far from a respectable score, though we were not likely to win. We were always struggling with the pace of the lawns, which are so fast that yesterday, the wind would keep the ball rolling for several yards, an effect we don't get used to on our sheltered and slower lawns.

We had a relatively inexperienced team to play at this standard, but it was good value and a steep learning curve. Very pleasing to have players who are rapidly improving, and coming through to this level. Good effort.
