A STRONG field competed in one of the most difficult trophies in the Heydon Grange year, the Secretary's Salver; a bogy competition against the course off a three-quarter handicap.

With a very close finish at the top, there were five players on three down contending for the second spot which ultimately was taken by Mel Marks (5) who pushed Malcolm Knobel-Forbes (12) down to third.

Top position went to Shaun Saward (8) with a very creditable one down in the gusting conditions.

In a separate ladies competition, Elaine Knobel-Forbes (20) won the monthly medal with a net 70 with second place going to Tina Broadley (8) with a net 74.

- Fine weather resulted in an excellent turn-out in both competitions at Royston Golf Club last weekend.

In the Battle of Britain Charity Stableford event on Saturday the men's section was won by Jonathan Osler (44 points), with James Sandford (42 points) in second place.

First place in the corresponding ladies section was secured by Gillian Doughton (31 points), with Sally Woodhead (26 points) in runner-up position.

A successful two days of golf was completed by Osler on Sunday when he shot 66 (70-4) to tie with David Shaw 66 (74-8) in the Viscount Hampden Bowl.

Both players will play off over 18 holes to decide the eventual winner of the trophy, which is dedicated to the memory of the first ever president of Royston Golf Club.
