Thornton Cup team ease into next round
Club Captain, David Turner, was extremely pleased with a comfortable win in the local derby last week against Upminster. Leading 4-1 at lunch, the team went on to consolidate things with a 10.5-4.5 triumph. Could this be the year that this team get back on track and go all the way? The strength in depth is the blend of youth and experience all required to do well in such an event. There are many strong sides but why not Orsett?
Well done to the team and keep up the good work!
Not to be outdone
The first outing of the season saw the Ladies Bronze team playing Colchester at home
The team of Gillian Vetori, Sue Mason, Linda Dinis, Tracey Rooney, April Glynn, Joyce McFarlane and Donna Smith secured a 4/3 victory,
Team Captain Ali "I couldn't be more proud of every player, a fabulous result for the team and a great start to the season for the ladies squad"
After the match Colchester complimented the team on their short game. "It can be no coincidence that the ladies squad have been working with David on all aspects of the short game"
On behalf of the ladies squad the three Captain's, Margaret Oliver, Joyce McFarlane and Alison Battle would like to thank David for the work that he has done with the ladies to help sharpen their short game.

Next week is the turn of the men’s Norman Plum team. Hopefully they can revenge the defeat of the cadets at the hands of the Rochford Hundred Club. Ok the boys lost 5-0 but The Rochford boys are English Club champions and even with a couple of the 'stars' missing the highest player was off 2!
If the form of a certain Sean Carroll (below, left) is anything to go by, a 'revenge' win should be forthcoming. Recently, at the 182yard par 3 8th, Sean holed his tee shot, into a stiff breeze with a 5 wood. Well done to him and good luck for this weekend!
Age is no barrier
If you think age stops you wanting to improve, think again. David Thomson (above, right), 81 years old, has just bought into the idea of custom fitting. A new PING G25 with a little more loft and softer shaft has added nearly 30 yards to his tee shots.
“I’ve tried numerous drivers over the last few years and even bought a whole box set of clubs as the driver from it seemed to work for my son, but I couldn`t buy the driver alone, however this PING driver fit has definitely made all the difference. Who wouldn`t want a bit more length?"
Who`d be a football manager? Less than a week after losing his job but probably not his salary, David Moyes must have seen the Man United sizeable win over lowly Norwich. Was this the class of 92 factor and as the Old Trafford banners read “RESPECT” for Giggs, Scholes, Butt and Neville or finally the team got speech they understood?…Attack first, attack second and attack third, something Mr Moyes team talks never seemed to carry. Who wouldn`t listen to those 4? It’s not like they don`t know how to play, is it?!
