The Lancashire Scratch League (Final Current League Standings) As at 21-Jul-10

Fylde finish Runners-Up in Division A of the Lancashire Scratch League behind North Lancs who will play Bolton DGA in the Final at Preston G.C on Aug 20th.

This page is dedicated to the Fylde Scratch Team, represented by the best golfers from around the Fylde. The 2008 team enjoyed great success when they lifted the Lancashire Scratch League Title from Manchester after losing out in the final a year before. The 2009 fixtures did not go to plan last year as The Fylde won their opener but lost their remaining fixtures and did not qualify for the final, a statistic which we will need to put right this year.

The Fylde have 2 home matches this season, the first will be a mouth-watering tie against North Lancs on May 21st at Royal Lytham. The team then face an away fixture in June to Southport DGA, finally home to Preston DGA on Tues 13th July at Blackpool Park. The team for the North Lancs match has been announced now the squad have confirmed their availability to play. All those selected please make every effort to play and if we get our strongest side out each match, we will be tough to beat this season.

The team to play North Lancs is as follows:.

Fylde District Scratch Team to play North Lancs 21-May-2010 at Royal Lytham
1. Charlie Beavers St. Anne’s Old Links +1
2. Curtis Dean St. Anne’s Old Links +1

The Fylde’s next match is on Tuesday June 29th against Southport DGA, away at Southport Old Links, as soon as a team has been selected it will be announced Here

Southport DGA Vs Fylde District

The Fylde had their second match in this seasons Lancashire Scratch League away at Southport Old Links, a tricky, short 9-hole course in the middle of Southport. The final score line (which we’ll get to in a minute) does not reflect the matches, as every one of the 7 games were decided down the 18th hole.

Fylde lost this encounter by 5 1/2 – 1 1/2 and it was just local knowledge that lost us each game, non of the lads ever having played this golf course, meant it was tricky to manoeuvre around and difficult small greens meant putting was a premium. Notwithstanding the score Southport ran out victors on the night and Fylde’s season left all but over unless results elsewhere help us out. For all the world it looks like the final will be North Lancs and Bolton, to be played at Preston G.C on Aug 21st.

Result: SOUTHPORT 5 1/2  Vs FYLDE 1 1/2

Still, we have one fixture left at Blackpool Parkon Tuesday (13th Jul) next week against Preston and they will be looking for a win.

Fylde Vs Preston DGA

On a rainy evening at Blackpool Park The Fylde ran out comfortable winners in the end by 4½ – 2½ against a Preston team that seemed to struggle on the slower greens. Promoted to Number one Charles Durnian had his hands full against Northern Order of Merit winner Mark Young form Longridge, but was always in the match, unfortunately losing out on the 17th when a pulled tee shot gave Young the half he was looking for and ran out winner by 2&1. Lee Collinson, on his home course showed his class and lead from start to finish, winning by 4&3 against the steady Danny Hall from Shaw Hill.

Lee Mayers put right his indifferent form in the Scratch League loss at home the night before and he too ran out a comfortable winner by 4&3.

Simon Denye again showed his Matchplay pedigree running out an easy 2&1 victor in the end against Hollingworth by making birdies on 16 & 17. Simon has played all 3 matches and has easily been the Fylde’s best player returning 2½ out of 3 since his inclusion, a job well done indeed.

Aiden Smith playing on his home course needed something special to happen as he was 2 down with 2 to play against Andrew Borge form Penwortham and did just that by winning both of the closing holes for a well earned half. Alex Croston from Fleetwood, on debut proved why his good form at club level has earned him a call to the Senior team by running out a 2&1 winner over Graham proctor from Penwortham. It was a hard fought match that went down the 17th and Alex made sure of the win with a deserved half on 17. Special mention to Alex, as it is not easy to come into the Senior side and do well, but perhaps Alex is one to watch for the future?

The final game was over early as a slip on the second tee box resulted in a concession to David Landen as I could go no further due to a back injury.

I would like to thank Blackpool Park for their superb hospitality after this match and to Royal Lytham for their efforts back in May. A special thanks to all the players who have represented Fylde this season, thank you for supporting the team, without your willingness to play we would not have a team at all. I hope next year sees a swift return to the Lancashire Scratch League final.
