JUNIOR PENNANT REPORT ROUND 4
Sunday 17th November & we travelled to Geelong Golf Club to play them in our final 2019 Junior Pennant match. Unfortunately we were a player short and therefore started 1 down.
But in true Portarlington tradition we came hard! A 3.5 / 1.5 victory was ours – two in a row.
Will Burr starred with a 5 / 4 win and where there’s a WILL there is another WILL –
Will English celebrated his third win for the season 5 / 4; Mighty Ella Rogers clinched the victory 4 / 3.
After 5 years of competition, with the last 2 as Captain, Jack Martin played in his final junior pennant match – he amazingly halved the match after giving a massive 27 shots to his opponent.
Bryson Nicholls was away on cricket duties.
Well done Jack, well played over the time and thank you for your contribution to our junior program. Jack has just completed Year 12 & now moves to the next adventure of his life.
Our Junior pennant team would like to thank all those who assisted them in 2019 – Ron Howell, Arthur Johnson, Phil Stephens, Angela Rogers, Herb Picker, Ian Morris, John W Bowman, Gary English, Deb Nicholls & of course Tyson, Jill & Matt – you were great!
Our juniors are not just the future of the club, they are THE future!
We now look forward to 2020 with some confidence.
We are always on the lookout for new juniors – if you have/know someone please give us a call.
