EVERYTHING fell into place for Greetham Valley’s 1st team on Saturday.
The side had been struggling for the last couple of matches and sit mid-table in their league but they enjoyed an emphatic 6-0 win at home to Sutton Bridge on Saturday.

l GREETHAM Valley Lady Captain Jackie Friend and Stoke Rochford Lady Captain and former Greetham member, Sheila Dugmore won the Stoke Rochford Ladies invitation day on countback with 39 points.
The format was pairs better ball Stableford and Jackie said that they gelled very well with each coming in when the other was out of it.
Lady Vice Captain Eileen Pare, who usually runs the mixed team, was away on holiday so Jackie stood in for her in the mixed match against Cold Ashby which was played on the Lakes course.
Officially, they halved the match. Unofficially, the Greetham team won as Cold Ashby had brought eight pairs instead of the usual six.
Rather than throwing the last two pairs out, the two lady captains decided to draw one pair to play for Greetham and the pair that Jackie had drawn won the final match.
