Warley Park 7½ Stoke By Nayland 3½
This is singles match play with teams of eleven a side off full handicap.
Warley Park had beaten the holders The Rayleigh Club in Rd 1 so a hard match was anticipated.
Recent rain had made the greens slower than expected and putting was tricky, making home advantage important.
The home side all played very well to beat a very strong Stoke side. Notable performances for Stoke were wins for Allen Smith (1 up), Graham Vandervord (3 & 2) and Mike Moore ( 1 up). Simon Oliphant did well to obtain a hard fought half.
A match played in good spirit and good luck to Warley Park in future rounds.
