'Friday 19th May saw the ex Players travel to Billingham for our annual golf challenge. The result was the same as most of our previous meetings with Billingham. They won again.
However, very encouragingly, we actually won two and drew one of the six four ball matches. Roll on next year!
Our thanks to Les Crank who organises the Billingham team and also to all their members who make us welcome (and then, invariably, give us a sound thrashing) and, the clubhouse staff who provide excellent hospitality.
