NIgel Featherstone Wins The Hospital Trophy
Many congratulations to Nigel Featherstone for winning the Hospital Trophy with nett 62+67=129 off 13, weathering the worst of the torrential showers in the afternoon. Nigel's handicap is now down to 11. If his run of form continues, it won't be long before he's down to single figures. Gary Johnstone came 2nd, with 67+66=133 off 6, although Gary is now back down to 5. Andy Boyle & Dave Snell took the day prized with 63 & 62, respectively.
May Monthly Medal Shock
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.
