Mid-term hiccup for Bury Seniors

First published in Sport

Bury Seniors mid-term revival shuddered to a halt with two away defeats in the Lancashire County Red Rose last week.

First up was a return visit to the Fylde coast to meet Blackpool North Shore.

Quick to avenge their recent 12-2 defeat at Bury, the home side set off at a determined pace.

Steve Bracegirdle and Gerry Barnes staged a dogged comeback to share the points on the 18th green before Blackpool edged ahead with a win in game two.

Bury struck back with Mike Howarth and Colin Duckworth squaring the match in game three with a fine 2&1 victory.

Games four and five were evenly matched with first, Stan Horne and Glyn Evans earning a half and Rod Watts and Alan Green following suit, to leave the match evenly balanced at 5-5.

Blackpool, however, finished strongly to take the last two games and the match 9-5.

Three days later saw the Unsworth Hall side make the short trip to Bolton to meet Deane on a very testing track in difficult conditions.

The home side roared into a four game lead with some scintillating golf.

Bury briefly closed the gap with Mike Howarth and Stan Horne striking back with a fine 3&2 victory.

This was followed by an exciting last green win for Peter Dawson and Ted Foster, before Deane struck back to take the last game and the match 10-4.

Today, Bury start to make inroads into their backlog of home matches when they entertain Preston based, Fishwick Hall (11am) before visiting Bolton Lostock next Monday and entertaining Heysham next Thursday.
