Seniors Match v Bury St Edmunds – Away – 5 May 2017

Felixstowe captain Steve Frost pointed out that it was early days in regard to Felixstowe’s poor run of form in recent seniors’ matches. He said that the new signings from Waldringfield Golf Club have blended in well and he assured the gathering press that Felixstowe would soon be back to winning ways any time soon.

The club issued a statement saying that Steve’s position was absolutely safe and they have full confidence in his ability to turn things around.  A vote of confidence indeed!

But…. Was the latest, if not unexpected, defeat away to Bury another nail in the coffin, only time will tell.

Steve put on a brave face in the light of yet another 6 ½ to 1 ½ defeat explaining that the team felt as if they were on a set of “Lord of the Rings “, with the “Ents”  deliberately stepping in the way of many of the Felixstowe players shots.

The Bury golf course was in prime condition and enjoyed by the hosts and visitors alike which was played in excellent spirit.
