Stoke Rochford Seniors came very close to losing their 16-match unbeaten home record against Stanton-on-the-Wolds.

Five of the matches in the 4-4 draw were decided on the 18th hole showed how close the match was.

The final pair of Philip Varley and Ray Beal came in with a 1-up win to half the match.

* A heavy defeat at Glen Gorse could easily have been quite different with both the first and last games lost to the last putt on the 18th green.
