The Southport Federation team continued their season with the June fixture being against Fylde ‘B’. The Hesketh Arms was again pleased to be asked to host the Federation team, following the game against Dudley last year. This is a reflection on all the hard work carried out on the green and surrounds over the last few years.
The Hesketh Arms was again well-represented, with Alistair and Kez Adams, Chris Harding, Mike Milne, Tony Wakefield and Mark Wilde all selected to play. Congratulations to Kez and Tony, who both enjoyed comfortable wins in the away leg.
The outcome of the match could not have been closer, with the home side’s six winners being enough to win their aggregate by 18 chalks. The away team had five winners and lost by 18 chalks, resulting in a tied aggregate overall. This was a good effort by the Southport team against strong opposition and they now go into their last game against Preston in July with all to play for.
