Manchester Captains entertained the Leicestershire
and Rutland Captains at The Manchester Golf Club on Monday 21st
locally as Hopwood the course was presented extremely well and
the club received fulsome praise all round for the course, the
hospitality and the catering.
Following a keenly fought match (inevitably accompanied by over
an hour’s downpour just to maintain reputations), dinner
was taken and toasts were made and reciprocated suitably by the
Manchester Captain Tony Gregory and Leicestershire and Rutland
President Charles Geary.
In completing his toast, The President announced that Leicestershire
and Rutland had prevailed by 5½ to 4½ and had therefore
retained The Ball.
The organisers were thanked and asked to make sure that friendly
hostilities are resumed next year.
