Perhaps shock is overstating it slightly, possibly just a mild surprise. The winner of the May Monthly Medal on Saturday was past-Captain Pete Wood, with an excellent nett 66 on a card play off from Steve Corfield. Ollie Lane won the 1st Division with 67. Dan Featherstone took 2nd place with 68. Pete, Steve, Ollie & Dan all qualify for the Medal Final in September.
The Hospital Trophy is contested over the next 2 weeks, so there is no presentation on Saturday 13th. The trophy was first played for in 1931 and is a beautiful piece of classic art deco. The original tradition of donating the 1st week's match fees to the Alderley Edge Cottage Hospital continues, although the recipient is now the Captain's Charity, this year its the East Cheshire Hospice.
