New Junior Captain
Stoke Rochford Golf Club held their Junior AGM on Sunday 18th February.
This saw Tom Rawson hand over the Junior Captain’s role to incoming Junior Captain Laura Harvey.
We all wish Laura Good Golfing for 2018 and the best of luck in her Captaincy.
Prior to the AGM, there was an Adult/Junior competition, to play for the inaugural “Richard Leverett Putter”, a Greensome stableford.
Richard Leverett a long standing member of nearly 60 years donated the putter and was on hand to present the Winners with their awards and vouchers.
The winners with 41 points Josh Green and Gavin Green
Runners up with 36 points Charlie Aspden and Avis Griffin
Richard Leverett then showed everyone some of the old clubs he has collected over the years, plus some very small golf balls.
He was very amusing with all his tales from years ago.
