With a big field of 108 players, everyone was determined to get their hands on the prizes - festive meat vouchers courtesy of sponsors local butchers Drews of Sidbury.

Playing as betterball pairs, those that managed the wintery conditions well were John Barnard and Lester Willmington on 42 points, who came fifth.

On countback in fourth, were Lewis White and Neil Holland on 43 points. Also with 43 points, were Luke Sheppard and David Bater, who took third, and Kym White and Bernie Ireson, who were placed second.

The winners out on their own with 44 points were Michael Knight and Mike Jenkins, who each picked up a voucher worth £65 to ensure a great feast at Christmas!

A separate ladies’ competition was won with 38 points by this year’s and last year’s ladies’ captains, Maria Clapp and Angela Coles, winning on countback from Sheila Faulkner and Marie Timms.
