The Scratch Team yesterday Sunday 27 February 2011 played South Beds Golf Club in a deciding match for the Scratch Team Winter League Trophy.
Dunstable Downs came out winners Two and Half – One and Half thus winning the League and Trophy.
Congratulations to all the players that have taken part.
Places are filling up fast for Darren’s Easter coaching sessions for Juniors. Spaces are limited to 8 so this really is a genuine “Do not delay as there might not be space if you leave it too long” type message. It was quite rewarding for everyone to see the February half term session ’sold out’. I spoke with Darren and he was really pleased on how things went. ”We were lucky with the weather. The clouds seemed to part in the hours when we were out on the practice ground and it wasn’t too cold either. Everyone seemed to enjoy it and there were one or two players who have got real potential to progress. What was also encouraging for me that most of the players were junior members.”
The weekly programme for the age range 6 to 13 starts on Saturday April 2nd. If you want to get your name down for these sessions then again you need to be quick. But do not worry if it is full as there will be many other dates throughout the season to join in.
Coaching dates for the more experienced players who will represent the club in the Tavistock & Ver League teams will follow shortly
