The return match took place today against our friends from West Cornwall having played there in March this year. 12 pairs a side took part today playing Greensomes Matchplay with the result St Austell 7 1/2 – West Cornwall 4 1/2.
Each year we play for a Trophy kindly put up by Shirley Gay (formerly Shirley Clark) and her late husband Derek and the aggregate score from both matches determines who holds the Trophy.
The result away was 8 1/2 – 2 1/2 in West Cornwall’s favour so they win the Trophy by 13 – 10 this year.
The Match was followed by an excellent buffet, served in the marquee, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
A popular fixture.
