Sid Seward, a past captain of Royston Golf Club, held his 31st MENCAP charity day at Royston on Friday.

Immediate past captain Nigel Thomas took the honours in the singles competition, on countback from Keith Cridland and Glenn Bowles, all scoring 35 points.

There was consolation for Cridland as he and his two playing partners took first prize in the team competition from Ian Coote’s greenkeepers team.

The day could not have happened without the fantastic support from Barclays Bank, Johnson Matthey, David Smyth and WKH for whom Seward expressed his thanks in his presentation speech.

The great day saw a large turn-out and the final amount raised should exceed £5,000.

Former captain David Caunce had reason to celebrate this week as he aced the par three 10th hole.

Teeing off into a stiff headwind, Caunce achieved his hole in one with a perfect shot using his driver.

The club’s scratch team continued their winning momentum as they triumphed 8-0 against Shires to move to the top of their division.

The Thursday Crew winner was Ian Rumbold with 34 points beating Micky Joyner into second place.

The Saturday Swindle was won by Terry Domogala with a magnificent 40 points, while on Sunday the four-ball better-ball winners were Darren Dawson and Mick Merry with 42 points on countback from Arlo Blair and Gary Noble.

Bank Holiday Monday saw the club holding their usual Texas Scramble competition and the honours were claimed by the team made up of F Calvert, J Ellis, J Hunt and T McGuiggan with a round of 58.6 nett.
