Whittington made their first visit to Bakewell and were well received by the players from Bakewell. In a number of tight matches on a small compact course, that had some interesting holes, two matches in particular that went to the 18th green were ultimately the difference in the result. Having been 3 down at the turn Steve Hudson, Bakewell, defeated Brian Mole, Whittington, on the 18th and with Steve Birds, Bakewell, defeating Pete Espin, Whittington, also on the 18th, the match was heavily in Bakewell favour.
Fortunately the showery weather stayed away for most of the matches which enabled the players to admire the wonderful views.
Congratulations Bakewell and I wish you the best of luck in the next round.
