Society of Manchester and District Captains finished another
memorable season with their annual dinner at Mere Golf and Country
The occasion marked the end of some sterling
service to the Match and Competition Committee Chairman Colin
Shadbolt of Bramall Park Golf Club who will be the society Captain
Colin said: “I would like to thank all who
played in the 2007 fixtures and that despite the poor weather
which we generally experienced members enjoyed the events, venues
and dinners we have shared together.
“We very much appreciate the support of the
Clubs which we have visited throughout the year, in every case
the reception and co-operation which we received was exceptional.
“Our annual match with the Liverpool Captains
at Chorlton was a narrow loss by 15.5 - 13.5 and this was disappointing
as a win would have levelled the series over 50+ years of history
of the event.
“We enjoyed a full season of matches with our
colleagues from neighbouring Captains’ Societies, again the results
we obtained were mixed, but I am sure that we will spend the winter
improving our game to ensure better results in 2008.
“My particular thanks go to Mike Rhodes and
Irvine Caplan together with our starters John Milner and Donald
McDonald for all their efforts during the year.
“As I retire following a few years at the ‘Competitions’
Helm’ I would like to say how much I have appreciated the support
and encouragement of all of our members and I am sure that I leave
the Committee in very capable hands.”
