The occasion would also see the club’s four new captains do their drives ins – men’s captain Lloyd Wardall, ladies captain Debbie Newnham-Davies, senior men’s captain Nigel Macklin and junior captain Connor Tallentire.

After the event over very welcome sandwiches and chips, the ladies and men’s captains introduced their charities for the year – FACES (Family and Children’s Early-help Services – a local charity) for Debbie and Cancer Research UK for Lloyd. A bottle raffle would raise £350 giving the collection for the charities a great start.

The competition itself would see a win for the all-male team of Damien Bavister, Mark Delicate, Martin Lewis and Nathan Bavister with a nett 58 and a win for the mixed team of Leo Conroy, Sarah Conroy, Pauline and Peter Hulance also with a nett 58.
