Thornton Cup 2018
The team tackled Clacton Golf Club on what can only be described as the perfect day. The morning foursomes saw a mixture of tried and tested and a couple of new pairings. Will Percival & Don Vidgeon lead the team out with a 4&3 victory, they were followed by Paul King & Callum Newton who sealed a tight match on the final hole by 1 up. New pairing of Mark Whiten & Harry Robson who gelled well for a 2&1 win. Steve Rooney & Cassidy Steffens steadied the ship after a wobbly start to run away 3&2 victors. The final match saw a great finish with the match halved in birdie 3’s to leave Orsett 4.5 – 0.5 up at lunchtime.
A young start to the afternoon singles with Will, Cass, Harry & Callum leading the team out, all 4 of them secured early wins resulting in the tie already being sealed, victories from Don, Joe & Chris along with a couple of honourable halves saw a final score of 12.5 – 2.5. The team progresses into the third round where they will wait to see if they are home or away.
Captain Kevin Lyons was delighted with such a comprehensive victory and was thankful to all the caddies and Members who supported throughout the day.
