Round 1 of the 2020 Eric Apperly Shield Vs Manly GC at Liverpool Golf Course.
Team included Robbie Minns (C), Joshua Battle, Rhys Vela, Brandon Vella, Hayden Goodwin, William Meredith, Matthew Garcia Johnson and Frank Gerace with the managers being, Paul Johnson and myself.
The boys were playing some great matches and with all our groups on the 12th and 13th hole we had 5 of our 6 matches between 2 and 5 up. It was looking pretty sweet and then we got hit by the thunderstorm that smashed Sydney today. Half an hour later with heavy rain, hail, thunder and lightning the day had been cancelled and all matches were halved. It was a tough blow when the boys had been playing so well, but unfortunately these are the rules and this time it wasn’t quite in our favour.
Special thanks to everyone involved today. The boys did great, all the caddies, Warren Minns, Abby Cooper, Matty and Frankie, Wayne Goodwin and Jason Webb and our team manager Paul Johnson.
With the tough finish everyone involved felt a little let down but we all came together well as a team and are looking forward to coming matches.
