Victory against Alnmouth in final league match of the season

Our team of Roger Carpenter, Tony McCann, Nigel Martin and Peter Tymms travelled north to Alnmouth to play our final Division 1 league match of the 2022 season.

The rain gods decided to have their say for the first set of games, but thereafter things dried up and by the afternoon conditions were comfortably warm.

Durham started well and got to the lunch break with a 6-3 lead. With the ground drying out, gauging the nuances of the Alnmouth greens seemed to get more difficult, and the afternoon session was tied. So overall it was a 10½ – 7½ victory to Durham.

Many thanks to Alnmouth for their hospitality, including a mention for the chocolate cornflake buns topped with smarties – delicious.
