Unfortunately tonight we finished our league season the way we started it with a 14-0 away defeat.
The Chester le Street side played really well tonight and almost all of our players were hit by a barrage of birdies.
As ever this season the team did their best and accepted results with the best of sporting spirit.
The high points for the season were a 10-4 win against eventual league winners Durham City and an 8-6 win against 3rd top team Seaham.
Thanks to all the team for turning out each week and representing the Club. To the caddies also, thanks for giving their time and supporting the players.
The person who deserves most thanks though is Chris Smith. He has done a great job organising the team each week and has done his best to keep the morale of the team high.
Full results from tonight are:
Stephen Binks lost 2&1 v's Keith Flynn
Paul Gilmour lost 5&4 v's Kevin Suggett
Jamie Pringle lost 9&8 v's Anthony Namjou
Steve Galloway lost 3&2 v's Alex Carr
