Stoke Rochford GC seniors came through to win a match which could so easily have gone the other way.
Seven of the eight matches against the Nottinghamshire were decided on the 18th green with four of them halved as Stoke won 6-2.
A hard-fought match against Peterborough Milton then resulted in a slender victory to maintain Stoke’s excellent start to the match season with just one defeat.
At the heart of this is seniors’ captain Jim Price who has gone unbeaten in six matches since losing the opener at Greetham Valley.
