Seniors Avalon 2022
This has been a superb season, with the team winning the North Division by nearly 25 points, with the total of 128.5 points also being high enough to win the Shackleford Trophy (for the best average points per match (10.7) over all ten divisions (60 teams) in the whole Avalon League). Winning the division qualified us for a home inter-divisional semi-final, which was also won, and thus the final which was held at The Mendip against Isle of Wedmore who had finished second in our division, but won their semi-final away at Taunton & Pickeridge. Unfortunately, on the day, Wedmore came out on top, with a 4-1 scoreline.
This disappointment should not take anything away from the massive achievements of the season, as previously we had never finished higher than third (last year), so to win the league was a massive step forward. We won all six home matches, and five out of six away including a 4.5-0.5 win at last season’s division winners (Worlebury), and a 5-0 win at Mendip Spring. The only lost match was away at Isle of Wedmore (yes, them again!), though most of those games were really close.
It has been encouraging to have a real mixture of people involved in the squad: some who have been playing every year, some returning from a period away, plus some who are new to Seniors Avalon (and the club). Special mentions to Mel Gibbon (top of the total points earned, and the average points per match, and with only one loss in 11 matches), and Kevin Gledhill (only one defeat (on the last green at Wedmore) in eight matches). Three players appeared in 13 of the 14 matches (Mark Curtis, Peter Mumford and myself). Due to the many positive results we’ve had, most players have had good performance statistics – see tables 2022 tables.Andy Pearce, Avalon Seniors Captain.
