Match Report:

Following qualification in May, the School was represented at the Grafton Morrish finals at Hunstanton Golf Club and Royal West Norfolk (Brancaster) Golf Club in late September.

Supported by the massed ranks of “seasoned tourers”, we opened our account with an extremely close match against local rivals Coventry. A win for the pair of Harry Westall and Barney Dowding was cancelled out by a loss for Tom Shiels and Jeremy Stubbings. James Hetherington and Louis Meryon halved their match and therefore had to endure a tense sudden death play-off to decide who went through to the second round. A win at the 2nd extra hole was enough for us to take our place against Ampleforth.

Despite another win for Westall and Dowding, we unfortunately didn’t quite repeat the drama of round one and were therefore out of the main competition, losing the match 2-1.

The following day we returned to play in the Solihull Salver; a scratch stableford competition for those schools who lost in rounds one and two. We were back to full strength with the arrival of Patrick Skakel who partnered Tom Shiels. A field of 28 teams took part with Solihull winning the event with a combined score of 94 points. The pair of Hetherington & Meryon also triumphing in the individual competition with a magnificent 38 points (2 under par). This is only the third time the school has won the Salver and the disappointment of the previous day was soon forgotten and gave us a good reason to celebrate with the usual army of supporters!

This also meant we qualified for the Committee Bowl, a knockout event for the top four teams in the Salver. Playing against Loughborough at Hunstanton on the final day of competition, we didn’t quite hit the same form and eventually lost 2½ - ½ 

Nevertheless, huge congratulations to the team on winning the Solihull Salver and thanks to all the supporters for once again making the trip such a special one.
