Mens Major Pennants
Cumberland 3.5 versus Massey Park 3.5
Prior to the commencement of this years Pennant season , the traditional thinking is that if you can win all of your home games and win one away game then that would put yourself in contention to win the division.
The away win alluded us but the 3 home wins at home was on the cards,until we capitulated at the death ,
To snatch an honorable draw against the divisional winners, was bitter sweet, full marks to Mark Hay 1 down with 2 to play and got the cash.
The effort and attitude of the players was never in doubt in 2018, however several players would concede that regardless of their best efforts the game required to compete at this level was allusive.
In the past the club has encouraged the low markers in the club to play in as many Vardon events as possible.
This would expose our elite players to the elite players of other clubs and assist them in fine tuning their course management away from home.
Our half on Sunday meant that we dodged a bullet and didn’t have to play off, to avoid relegation for the second time in 3 years.
Clearly there needs to be a re evaluation of the way we approach the entire process of our Major Pennants campaign.
It has been my very great honour to be involved with the team again this year, without exception all members of the team wanted only what was in the best interest of the team.
