Winning start to Club's CA GC Federations Shield campaign

Our SCCC Team of early risers opened their CA GC Federations Shield campaign in fine style with a 6 1/2 -1/2 win over Broadwas CC at High Wycombe on Saturday 14th August, after a first round bye.

The team - Tony Jolly (2), David King (3), Simon Ancell (7) & Linda Gavigan (8) - led 2-0 at the lunch break, with wins for the doubles and Simon's singles, while Linda was tied at 1 game all against her zero handicap opponent - each individual match is best of 3 games. After lunch our success continued, with each of our players winning their singles matches - a good all round team effort, managing to take advantage of, or defend, the extra turns, to round off an extremely good day. Well done to Simon, who has only been playing for a Covid restricted year, in his first away match.
