Convincing victory for Burnham’s Avalon side

A convincing victory by Burnham & Berrow Golf Club’s Avalon B team should guarantee at least second place in the league.

The Burnham & Berrow Avalon League B team celebrated a convincing 4-1 away win at the Isle of Wedmore Golf Club, which should guarantee at least a second place finish in the league.

Leading the way with a 7&6 win, team captains Martin Dunton and Martyn Milverton dedicated the team victory to former club and Avalon League captain Martin Wilkins, who is recovering after major surgery.

The second game went to Wedmore by 5&4, before captain-elect Pete Amos and Kevin Phillips put the visitors in front once again with a 3&2 win. Steve Seymour and debutant Billy Marshfield had a convincing 6&4 victory in the fourth match.

A tight game in the last match which went to the last putt on the last green with Tim Osborne holing a three footer at the last to give him and his playing partner Jon Marshfield a one-hole victory over their hosts.
