Match Result v Long Sutton (A) 29th August 2017
The result of this fixture was a stunning victory for Orchardleigh Seniors by five and a half matches to one half. This despite the home team's effort to thwart us by hollow coring and sanding the greens the day before!
Congratulations to all the team for their effort and commitment.
