THE Senior section of Cricket St Thomas Golf Club used the week to play the annual Cyder Cup, in which the captain (Barrie Heath) and vice-captain (Peter Spencer-Farr) select teams to play against each other in three formats.

However, the 4ball better ball leg of the competition was cancelled on Monday, due to adverse weather conditions.

Players reconvened on Wednesday for the foursomes leg, and 44 members were engaged in 11 matches played in a miserable drizzle.

The first pair of the captain’s team won their game on the 16th green to take the lead, and with the following five games being well contested, the halfway score stood at 3-3.

There followed a barrage of wins for the captain’s team, as Roger Hinds/Rod Young, Terry Blackburn/Keith Branchflower, Roger Davis/Dickie Hall and S Kitchener/Toss Smith all overcame their opponents to take a 7-3 lead.

The final game was a walkover due to absenteeism, and the day finished at 7-4 to the captain.

The singles leg took place on Friday in dry and sunny conditions.

The 44 members played 22 singles games, with the captain needing 10 points to win the cup.

A calamitous start by the vice-captain’s team saw the first eight games all go in favour of the captain.

Some hope was established when Roger Stone beat Des Denning and Rob Flower overcame Bryan Frost, but the silverware was secure when Goddard beat Withers in the 24th game.

The final score for the event finished 23-10 in favour of captain Barrie Heath.
