Leighton Buzzard Golf Club Golf Director
On Sunday club Captain Adrian Stephenson led his team to a one-match victory over a squad assembled by President John Preston.
The annual encounter pits club members against former Captains, Presidents and new members for a trophy and bragging rights and this year it was Adrian's team who claimed victory with a last-gasp 6-5 win against a Presidents' team which was forced into late changes.
John Preston completed a hat-trick of wins for the Presidents last year, but he failed to complete the "double" in a see-saw encounter after Ada's Red Army got off to a flying start.
Wins by Adrian and Vice Captain John Smith, Will Sampson and Billy O'Neill and Graham Freer and Stephen Paine gave the club squad a 3-0 lead before the Presidents hit back with five wins on the trot. Adam and Laurie Benson, George Darbyshire and Andy Lock, Peter Taylor and Stuart Leslie, Tony Simpson and Phil Rickard and David Hawkins and Paul Atkinson all returned winning cards before Andy Vale and Steve Fleming and Sam Messenger and Dave Evans levelled the scores.
With Brian Wilson and Peter Townley halving their match against Paul Ahmet and Nigel Chapman, the result hinged on the final match….with Ed Stephenson securing victory for his father with a last-gasp win with playing partner Keith Edmunds.
Captain Ada Stephenson led the club team to a 7-1 victory over Aspley Guise on Saturday, opening the clubs account with Steve Leng with a two hole win.
They were followed into the clubhouse with wins by Mark Hammond and County President David Hawkins, Paul Ellam and Phil Eddy, Peter Burgoyne and Shane Bentley, Graham Freer and David Evans, Will Sampson and Ben Irvine and John Smith and Jeremy Taylor.
Geoff Smith has won two golfing trophies in the space of a week. Just days after being named by the club-based Plum Duffs society as their champion of the year, 81-year-old Geoff won the clubs Seniors' Austen Farrell Trophy competition with a score of 40 points. Seniors skipper Robbie John was runner-up on countback after a three way tie with David Sweetnam and Tom Davis all on 37 points; with Terry Wright, 36pts, Dave Banwell, 35pts, Dave Roffe and Dave Debell, 34 pts, and Mike Manning, 33pts, completing the prize list.
Ladies Vice Captain Avril Simpson, who will be holding a Christmas Bazaar at the club on Thursday, November 17 to raise funds for charity, has won the Ladies Medal Cup. Her combined nett scores of 145 from Spring and Autumn meetings beat runner-up Gill McDougall by ten shots. The medal of the day was won by Paula Cox, her nett 77 beating Vicki Pratt by a shot, with Oonagh Russell and Chris Giles recording the best fourball betterball score.
