Thanks to everyone who took part in the away match at Bellingham on 23rd May – a fairly narrow defeat – losing 6-4 on a tough course is not a bad result.  We have the opportunity to exact revenge at Allendale on 20th June.  The provisional pairings will be:

Robin Down & Ian Crocker
Jim Hall & Ray Wilson
Robin Makepeace & Geoff Edwards
Dennis Cousins & John Colman

Again, only five pairs will be required.
