Match Report
King's Ely 1st  vs  The Leys School
On: Tuesday, 21 Nov 2023
Venue: Away

King’s 2 / The Leys 0

The 2nd team played its first friendly game against the Leys at Girton Golf Club on a beautiful autumnal afternoon, with the sun shining and little wind. Our four players were James Barber and Ben Alderton (Y13), and William Shaw and Hugh Chippington (Y11).

James and Ben were the first to tee off and a very close game was soon being played. The lead went back and forth between the teams, with the Leys drawing level on the 18th hole! This resulted in a playoff at the first hole, and James and Ben both landed their second shots on the green. In the fading light, agonisingly, Ben missed his 15ft putt, but James made his 8ft putt, winning the hole with the only birdy of the match.

The second pairing of William and Hugh were soon driving off from the temporary tees, with both finding the fading light rough. However, to their credit, William and Hugh won the first and second holes, and then went on to win the match 2 & 1.

Congratulations to all the players involved for achieving such a great result!
