Match Report
Reading Blue Coat School Boys-U18A vs  Charterhouse
On: Tuesday, 18 Sep 2018
Venue: at Home

This was a very encouraging 2.5 to 0.5 win in the first round of the HMC Foursomes competition against Charterhouse School, which has the significant advantage of its own course! Our boys clearly put some work in over the summer break fine-tuning their games and coped well with windy conditions at Sonning Golf Club..

Our pairings dovetailed well with Aifdan Sinclair and Eddie Wang leading throughout and taking a commanding 6&4 victory. Luca Knowles and Will Frood's match was a closer encounter with virtually every hole being won outright. At one stage the boys were 3 holes down but fought back well to take a 4&3 win i.

Team Captain Will Tate graciously partnered debutant Ollie Bryant for what must have been a nervous outing as lead pair and this match was the tightest of all. Their opponents played far better than their handicaps suggested and took the match to the last hole, now surrounded by a host of spectators from completed matches. Charterhouse managed to sink a great putt to half that match. This did not, nevertheless, prevent a stirring overall victory for RBCS.
