Suffolk Seniors v Kent Seniors

Suffolk entertained Kent, in their annual pre-season match, the venue this year being Aldeburgh Golf Club. The weather was brutal with wind gusting at 50/60 mph. Kent fielded an extremely strong side and with their players handling the conditions better they eventually ran out winners by 8 games to 2. 

For Suffolk Roger Taylor played very well to halve with Kent's outstanding player Richard Partridge whilst Mark Jackson also halved his game with Jon Wright and Richard Barton defeated Ian Brooker 2 & 1.

Full results- Roger Taylor halved with Richard Partridge, Steve Whymark lost 6 & 4 to Chris Reynolds, John Whitby lost 5 & 4 to Bruce Hilsdon, Trevor Hellyer lost 1 down to Ross Galgut, Geoff Henney lost 4 & 3 to Phil Bramall, Mark Jackson halved with Jon Wright, Richard Barton beat Ian Brooker 2 & 1, Andy Whittaker lost 6 & 4 to Peter Remy, Tom Collett lost 8 & 7 to Ricky Moore, Giles Oates lost 2 & 1 to David Weighton
