THE January Medal and Cosh H Trophy Division One winners all came from the early groups.
First, with nett 67, was B Kelland. Second, winning on the count-back, was S Mackie with a 58, beating R Gibbons.
J Russell won division two by two shots, with a nett 64. Second, and winner of the CoshH, was C Glover with a nett 66, beating new boy T Phillips, also with a nett 66.
l With the county still in the grip of winter it is a tribute to Axe Cliff that the Seniors' January Medal went ahead last Friday with the only complaint being a brisk, swirling, southerly wind.
The majority of the 26 competitors coped manfully and, until the final trio came in, the leader, with a solid 73 nett, was Sid Pember (18).
Suddenly Sid found himself in third position as a 70 nett was carded by the ultimate winner Phil Christmas (26) with Iain Bain (13) taking second place with 72 nett.
Two players had 73 nett, Sid taking third place on the better inward half ruling with Roger Hill (21) the player to miss out.
