Benign conditions at Burnham and Berrow Golf club greeted the Sherborne team on the first morning of the competition. Excellent practice had been done on the previous day and confidence was high in the expectation of playing Marlborough in the first round, only to find that it was Taunton as Marlborough had been scratched. Jos Pralle teed off against the home club champion and the match was well and truly started. In the end it proved a relatively easy victory for the school 4-1. In the afternoon Canford were the next opponents. In the last 14 years Sherborne had never beaten Canford. Was this the day? The determination to win was very evident from the quiet on the first tee. All players were aware of what was at stake – a place in the final. Phone messages flew from the sand dunes at Burnham to Mr Pryor in his study. It was very tight – James Trotman had lost, Jos Pralle, Charlie Leach and Zaidoon Zakaria were all involved in very tight matches and then as the round was nearing completion Robbie Busher won 4 and three with both Jos Pralle and Zaidoon Zakaria securing excellent victories to take the school to a 3-2 victory. It was very easy to see what this meant to the team.
