Dan Bovington and Luke Matthews won the Roy Connett Salver at Worlebury Golf Club.
THE Roy Connett Salver and Plate is a winter competition at Worlebury for pairs who took on the captain, Pete Nuttall and the club professional, Gary Marks during the course of the golfing season.
The victorious pairs play for the salver, those not so successful, the plate. Winners of the latter were former captains Keri Allchurch and Martin Green with a fine score of 43 points, with Dan Bovington and Luke Matthews taking the honours in the premier event with 39 points.
Although the snow closed the course, a sizeable crowd turned up for the Sunday lunchtime session in the clubhouse to see the club captain’s present a cheque for £7,082.31 to Sarah Bostok of Weston HospiceCare.
This magnificent sum was raised as the result of the combined efforts of the members including the ladies’ and seniors’ sections.

TWO competitions managed to be played before the snow wiped out play at Wedmore.
The seniors held a Texas Scramble and despite conditions being wet, there were some incredibly good scores. Leading the way were Derek Warn, Eddie Parlour and Jim Crick, who recorded a nett 60.
They were closely chased by Tony Glover, John Sim and, making a rare but welcome visit on to the medal podium, Bernard Parsons. Their 61 put them just a shot ahead of the third placed team of Derek Osborn, Terry Stew and Ron Barrett,
Faced with chilly conditions, the ladies reduced their competition to just nine holes. The competition was a four-ball better-ball and produced some good scores. Top of the pile were Sue Hughes and Shirley Restorick, who amassed 24 Stableford points.
This gave them a clear margin of two points over runners-up, Ronnie Follenfant and Vera Ireland, who in turn had a two point margin over the third placed pairing of Sue Tarry and Desiree McGowan.
