Rickmansworth v Meyrick Park Friendly Match Report – played on 04-Nov-2017

***Apologies from the website editor – the last men’s match report of the season was overlooked!***

The match that nearly wasn’t, was finally played on the 4th of November after two cancellations due to a shortage of players, from Ricky the first time, and then from Meyrick Park the second. So, finally on a rainy November morning we all sat down to a very nice full English breakfast which got us all off to a good start. After several holes of wet weather, the liquid stopped falling and it turned into a very nice day, both weather-wise and playing wise. Rickmansworth were 4-2 up from the away match at Meyrick, so the task of winning was made easier but with the Meyrick Park team on form, you just never know as they came to Ricky and won last year taking the trophy back to Meyrick. After all the scores had come in, and with some nervous moments, it was clear that Rickmansworth, at Fortress Rickmansworth had prized the trophy from Meyrick Park in fine fashion. The final result was a 3½-2½ home win, making the overall match score Rickmansworth 7½ – Meyrick Park 4½. The sweep was won by the first team out, Peter Maestas and Ian Mackie with a very healthy tally of 46 points. As this is the last match of 2017, I would like to extend a VERY LARGE thank you, to all the players who supported me this year and I hope you will give the same support to our 2018 Captain Martin Bartlett. Thanks again, and see you out on the course.

Peter Maestas, Captain 2017
