02/10/11 Triumph in the Longman Club Team Cup 2011 for G&G. Saturday saw the team of Mark Godfrey (captain), Arthur Lindley, Mike Thompson and Stephen Stuart-Matthews defeat Ealing in the semi-final at Surbiton. This was the second time the club had reached the final and on Sunday the same team met Nottingham. At lunchtime Guildford & Godalming were 2-1 down but tension rose as the teams came level at 3-3 later in the afternoon with just one game to complete. It was a nail-biting time as scores in this last game were level as time was called. All eyes were on the players, the captain telephoned a running commentary back to the club as in the closing moments Mike Thompson clinched matters winning the game on the ‘golden hoop’. Congratulations to the team on winning our first national competition and also to Andrew Fewster, Robert Bateson and Ian Fugeman who played in the earlier rounds which enabled the club to reach the semi-finals.
