Trounson Trophy Report


Wes Allen, John Parkinson, Tim Edwards and Henry Edwards represented Long Sutton in Sunday’s SGU Trounson Trophy, a team strokeplay event with best 3 of 4 nett scores to count. An early score of +12 for Oake Manor 1 looked as though it could be enough to win it in very difficult conditions until Wes came in with a magnificent 1 under par 71. Wes was closely followed by John Parkinson with a 3 over 74, meaning either Tim or Henry needed 10 over or better for Long Sutton to take a late lead. Tim struggled in the conditions and shot 13 over 85 but Henry battled on and came in with a 10 over 82 giving a best 3 score of +11. Other team scores were coming in but no one was challenging and we waited for the last 2 teams of Taunton & Pickeridge and Clevedon 1. T & P’s first 2 scores gave them 12 over and Clevedon’s first 2 were 18 over....still looking good. T & P’s next 2 scores gave them a best 3 score of +18, Clevedon’s next card gave them a score of +23. It was all looking good until the very last card was handed in…… level par. It meant that Clevedon’s worst score of +14 was dropped and they ended with + 9, pipping Long Sutton for the Trounson Trophy by 2 shots.

Our team still carried away the runners up prize, The Windwhistle Trophy, and nobody could match Wes’s score as he took the President’s Shield.

Massive congratulations to all 4 players, none of whom had played Clevedon before.

Seniors Bowl - first round win

Seniors Bowl first round

We were drawn against Wells for the first round, the team which beat us in the 2011 final, a tough opening match!

First up were Rich Bartin and Alan Webber. They were up against a pair who were receiving 5 shots. After 12 holes they were 3 down - not looking good.

Second out were John Parkinson and Mike Poole (unbeaten in last years campaign) also giving quite a few shots. They were never really in trouble and went  on to win 3 and 1. Long Sutton 1 up

Third out were Martin Hawkins and Phil Bowditch, again giving shots, but went on to win very comfortably 4 and 2.   2 up.

Fourth out were Norm Banfield and Dick Butcher who were up against a very strong pair including the 2015 Seniors county champion. After a tight match the lost 2 and 1.  

Last pair  out were Graham Load and myself. Up against a strong pair (their 2011 winning captain) we went 3 up after 3 BUT.....after 12 holes they clawed their way back to only 1 down.

In the meantime Rich and Alan had squared their match, so all was in the balance!  Onto extra holes and they unfortunately lost the 19th ( Rich please note you still owe Alan 4 balls)

Match all square. 

Luckily I managed to find some putting form after Graham had put me in good positions and we won the next two holes to close out the match 3-2.

Well done team.

We now play Tickenham or Minehead in the next round

Somerset Bowl – Long Sutton Sneak through

Somerset Bowl – Long Sutton Sneak through

On a glorious Saturday lunchtime at Orchardleigh the LS team set about the defence of its Somerset Bowl crown against Entry Hill. First out John Parkinson and Hugh McQuire, who were locked in a titanic battle but got 1 up late on and held on up the 18th to run out winners 1 up. Meanwhile, second out Norman Banfield and Nick Goodliff were in fine form storming to a 5&4 victory, so 2 from 2 so far. The 3rd match of Gary French and Wesley Allen were struggling and through 7 holes were 5 down, not to worry as match 4 myself and Richard Bartin were 3 up through 8 and match 5 Jamie Brodie and Chris Binding were 4 up. Richard and I lost 6 holes on the spin and went from a commanding winning position to a losing one and whilst we battled hard we lost on the 18th after I hit it out of bounds going for the green in 2 needing a win on the hole to force extra holes. Jamie and Chris too had got on a losing streak and lost 1 down on 18. Match tied at 2-2, so back to Match 3 we go, Gary and Wesley making a fine fight of affairs despite giving 12 shots. As we got further around the course Gary and Wes were eating into the lead of their opponents and when they got to the 16th tee they had squared the match up. A win up the 16th saw them ahead for the first time in the match, and then it was onto the tricky 17th. Wesley had put Gary in the valley of doom but Gary was more than up for the challenge, rolling the putt in up the slope for a 2 and a 2 and1 victory sealing a tense and nerve wracking tie!

Well done Team, Round 2 awaits with Weston Super Mare the opponents.
