NINE-handicapper Simon Thompson won the coveted Centenary Salver Final at Royston Golf Club on Sunday.

The top 15 qualifiers played off over 18 holes and Thompson took the trophy with a fine nett 66 to fend off the challenge from Paul Hayden (12) and Richard Howorth (5), who both returned 68's.

Stuart Farrow was just out of the frame with a fine nett 69.

In the Men's Medal, played alongside the Centenary Final, Mick Rowland was in blistering form and recorded a nett 62 which contained just four bogeys and 14 pars.

Wayne Hunt and Nick Leah also had fantastic rounds of 63 with Hunt (10) taking the runners up spot on countback.

Greg Fyson continued his good form with a 66, whilst Wayne Young recorded the lowest gross with a 72.

Paul Maslin won Division Two with a nett 63. The 13-handicapper dropped just one shot on the inward nine and was three strokes clear of runner-up Chris Coote.

Sheila Wood won the Ladies' Medal on Thursday with a nett 71, edging out her close friend Vi Bauckham who had a 72.

On Saturday Judith Osler won the Medal with a 71 ahead of Emma Logan and Alice Lewis.

The gents versus juniors match took place recently with a very good turnout of fourteen players per side.

There were some close matches but some of the gents had to give away too many shots, notably Ian Osler giving 36 and Jack Yetton 24.

The juniors triumphed eight matches to six and then immediately went out on to the putting green to practice, leaving the gents to relax and reflect in the clubhouse.
