Jack Prescott Seacroft Trophy
What a splendid weekend for this event, the weather on both days was outstanding, with boys in their shirt sleeves, no wind and plenty of sun tan lotion. The course was a huge learning curve for most of the sixteen boys as not many had played a links type course before. However, they did adapt well and by all accounts they really enjoyed it.
Saturday was single stableford over 11 holes playing off scratch.
Results: - Tyler Allsopp- 1st with 29 points; 2nd George Cordall with 26 points and 3rd was Matthew Barker with 23 points.
Sunday was the first Jack Prescott Seacroft Trophy event, with the trophy donated by Jacks family in his memory. The boys played 18 holes 4 ball better ball off 90% handicap.
Results: -1st - George Cordall & Sam Jacklin - 42 points winning on the last 6 holes; 2rd - Tyler Allsopp & Ralph Farnsworth - 42points; 3rd - Finn Nelson & Thomas Eaton - 40 points.
The event was well supported by parents, President Bob Ward, Deputy President Edgar Bramwell, Past President Roger Poole & his wife Ann, U18s/U16s manager Joe Stocker & his wife Thelma and me & my wife Suzanne. We all had a fantastic time spent with the boys and witnessed some exceptional golf. Well done to all the lads - looking forward to a great 2019 season.
