Our Leslie Wood team played their final yesterday with 300+ spectators from both Romford and Upminster witnessed a game played in the right spirit by two local members clubs. Romford played well in the morning gaining a 3.5 to 1.5 advantage into the afternoon singles. Leslie Wood stalwart Scott Wilding was out first and came home a 6/5 winner to increase the lead................but a massive fight back by Upminster saw our local rivals come out the winners by 9.5 to 5.5. Despite massive prep work by all the team and the Captain it wasn't to be..........but a great effort by Gary and his squad of players.

Sven Deutscher in the Alternative Stableford had the round of his life....the nine handicapper had 7 gross birdies in his score of 46 points and promptly got cut to 7!!!
