Tydd St Giles Golf Club’s famous five come up just short

Tydd St Giles Golf Club’s ladies put in a fine showing at the Annodata Matchplay competition on Sunday – but ultimately came up short.

The five team members played singles matchplay at King’s Lynn Golf Club, with Lyn Exley winning 3&2, Christine Burton winning one up, Julie Perry losing one down, Maria Taylor-Vassall halving and Lorraine Gallie losing 5&4.

As the match was halved number five player Gallie had to play a sudden death match – which she sadly lost after two further holes.

Captain Taylor-Vassall said: “We put up a tremendous fight and I’m very pleased and proud of our performance.”
