East retain the Elise Duncan Trophy.


Captain Chris Fowler presents East Captain Anne Rorrison
with the Elise Duncan Trophy

The West Vets Team turned up at Glencorse Golf Club hoping for a win for the first time since 2014.
It was much closer than last year, unfortunately we lost 5 ½ -  3 ½ 
However 5 games were very well contested, going all the way to the 18th.

Both teams thoroughly enjoyed Glencorse, finding it a tricky and interesting course. It was in great condition considering the weather the day before.
As usual the friendship was evident on the course and in the clubhouse during the meal, and we must thank Glencorse G.C. and East Vets Captain Anne Rorrison for hosting such an enjoyable day.
