EACF GC Central Handicap League


Enfield West lost to Enfield South 14 games to 4 Wednesday 26 April


A good game on a cold windy day played in fine spirit.

South took a quick lead in the doubles - by scraping the second doubles game 7 to 6 hoops - it could easily have gone the other way.


The Round 1 matches were fairly easily won by South with Brian Sturt putting in a good win for the home side.

Same again Round 2 with Brian Sturt again having the only victory for West.


And yet again Rounds 3 and 4 with a home win each for Jenny Ruddle and Alan Foott

Congratulations to David Barnicoat for winning all of his 4 games - in his first league match. 3 singles each for Henry and Andrew Fall - also in his first league match. With Frances holding her own on 2 wins.

Unable to decide on the best jump shot of the day - either Andrew Fall or Brian Sturt both with 6 footers.

Well done to all.

Des and Brian Dawes
