Staff versus Parents and Students Golf Match, Rothley Park Golf Club – 22nd May 2014
Congratulations to the parents and students golf team who beat a talented staff team 4 points to 2 at a rain soaked course at Rothley Park Golf Club. Despite the wet conditions over the opening 4 holes, there was some lovely golf played. Thankfully the weather improved as the evening progressed and the golfers were bathed in sunshine as they played their last hole. Mr Trudgill won the nearest the pin competition on the Par 3 4th hole with a super short iron into the double green.
The results were as follows:
- Gianluca Bucci and Mr Bucci vs. Tom Binnie and Mr Binnie (won 1 up)
- Alex Jarvis and Mr Jarvis (won 1 up) vs. Mr Gilchrist and Mr Willcock
- Jack Hancock and Mr Hancock vs. Mr Cook and Mr Taylor (won 1 up)
- Aimee Cleminson and Mr Cleminson (won 5&3) vs. Mr Walker and Mr Michel
- Mir Patel and Mr Patel (won 3&2) vs. Mrs Dorn and Mr Yell
- Ben Trudgill and Mr Trudgill (won 3up) vs. Mr Henshaw and Mr Mee
- Mr Gilchrist (Junior) vs. Mr Reddin (won 2&1)
Congratulations to Tom Binnie (Year 7), Gianluca Bucci (Year 7) and Aimee Cleminson (Year 6) who were playing in this fixture for the first time with their fathers. All acquitted themselves very well and received a prize at the end of the evening for their efforts.
Thank you to all those who gave up their time to play and help create such a lovely atmosphere for the students. Thank you to Mr Danny Spillane, PGA professional, and the Rothley Park Golf Club for allowing us to play and providing such good hospitality after the match. The staff are looking forward to having an opportunity to reverse the score-line next year.
