The Trophy in the name of one of the Seniors’ stalwarts for so many years took place under blue skies and gentle breeze, which should have produced better scores than emerged from the 20 Bowmaker teams competing.

The best team score of the day came from the all-male team of Ian Haslam, Scott Webster and Mike Baker with 76 points, but the trophy was awarded to the best score by a mixed team, Dawn Rawlings, Alan Armstrong and Peter Jubb with 75 points.

Elsewhere, new member, Ian Powell, continues to defy the handicapper’s best efforts to halt his run of success, as he came out on top in the July Medal.

His magnificent 64 off a handicap of 19 to win Division Two has earned him a further two-shot cut, but it remains to be seen if this will be his final cut of the year. A welcome return to form for Tim Blick saw him clinch second place with a net 68, on countback from Willie McIvor.

Meanwhile in Division 1, John Carrington with 69 off 18 held on to beat Seniors captain, Andy Taylor and Nigel Rawlings who both shot a net level par 70.

Seniors were delighted that Mike Lusty’s son, Paul was able to attend and present the Trophy to Dawn Rawlings who accepted it on behalf of her teammates.
