The Axe Cliff men have spent the last few weeks busy with a run of trophy events, writes Dave Bruce.
First up was the President’s Prize, played in a stableford format.
It proved to be a mighty close contest throughout with countback called into play to determine the ultimate winner and that was captain Dave Morgan, who took the honours with 35 points, edging that well known ‘postie’ Paul Clode into second place.
Third was Simon Matthews with 34 points. Craig Trivett and Anthony Hellier managed to get twos on their respective cards.
Next up, the Terrace Cup was played in teams of three as a bowmaker stableford.

The only two recorded was scored by Anthony Hellier. The third and final recent competition was the Centenary Cup and this also saw a close contest with good old countback once again called into play and it all meant that Andy Moore took the honours, edging the ‘beastie of the bar’ Phil Hellier, into the runners-up spot, after both players scored a nett 65.
Simon Matthews continued his fine form by claiming third spot with his nett 70. Just the one two was scored with Tom Spencer the player to achieve it.
In the latest meeting of the Axe Cliff seniors, Peter Casey surprised everyone by winning the Captain’s Trophy .
Peter played a faultless round in last Friday’s meeting, amassing a terrific 38 points which left Chris Jowett, with his score of 37 points, having to settle for second while third was Neil Moorcraft and the lone two was recorded by Rob Heard.
