PAST CAPTAIN’S SHIELD AND PAST CAPTAIN’S CUP
The Past Captain’s Shield took place last Sunday 20th September. The competition was entered by 73 members, who contributed £73.00 to St Margaret’s Hospice and my thanks for those donations. The competition was well fought with two members fighting for 1st place with 41 points. Luke Appleton just pipped Malcolm Head on the back 9. Well played to both.
Within this competition, the Past Captain’s, play for the Past Captain’s Cup. This Cup was presented to the Club by John Padfield when he was Captain and has been played for ever since. This year I was pleased to see 20 of the 24 Past Captain’s playing, and for 18 of their wives and partners attending the traditional lunch afterwards. It was a grand day starting with bacon baps and coffee and ending with the lunch / evening and everyone enjoyed themselves. This year the Cup was won with a substantial margin by Malcolm Head, who took home the trophy and an engraved whiskey tumbler from the Club Captain, as a memento.
