Ricky march on to Clapham Area final

Rickmansworth’s Clapham team have once again come up trumps in their latest match in this season’s NAPGC Clapham Common Shield.

On the hottest day of the year so far, Ricky played Wycombe Heights in the area semi final. The home team of Captain Jake Jacobson & Denis Curran, Graham Farmer & David Wills and Ian Mackie & Paul Roffe teed off at 8.30 and managed to compile a total of 109 points, a 3 point advantage over Wycombe’s 106. 

The away team of Ben Plumridge & Rob Camilleri, Dave Miles & Mick Rogers and Martin Bartlett & Leon Kelly teed off an hour later, so there was quite some some to wait before the scores filtered back to HQ. Would the home team’s 3 point lead be enough for the away team to hang on? Well out in match one, Ben & Rob did the damage with a superb 7-point win to set the blues on their way. The final score from Wycombe was a 4-point win for Ricky (111-107) giving an overall match result of Rickmansworth 220 – 213 Wycombe Heights. A great win, in sticky conditions! The match was played in great spirit, and new friends made. Ricky progress on to the area final where Haste Hill await.
