It is proving to be a very successful year for the Jones family at Brean as another piece of silverware found its way in their direction on Saturday. 

The Silver Jubilee Cup is a pairs aggregate medal, a format which leaves little room for mistakes from either player. 

Only one of 30 teams saw both players post a sub-par round and that was the father-and-son duo of Steve and Zak Jones.

They handed in nett 68s to give them a total of 136 and a one-stroke victory over three pairs who tied on 137. 

Once all six scorecards were scrutinised the runners-up prize was awarded to Gail Mason and John Rabbetts.

Mason, who played from the white tees, contributed a superb nett 63 to the total but it was Rabbetts' back nine recovery that aided the countback success to bring them second. 

CJ Organ (65) and Steve Eley (72) took third ahead of club captain Pete Barton (70) and Brian Read (67) in fourth.

Jon Friend, Ben Amghar and Trevor Bryant enjoyed their trip to Brean as they took the first prize in the Sunday's Open Scramble. 

The visiting trio from Kingweston produced a stunning nett 51 to win by three strokes from Simon Baunton and Dave Porter who were joined by former Brean club champion Phil Hodgson in the runners-up position. 

Third place went to the in-form Gail Mason who partnered husband Steve and John Rabbetts to a nett 55 but crucially they had a better back nine than Team Jones. 

Steve was accompanied by daughter Millie and son Zak to claim the final prize of the day in fourth after losing out on countback. 

Martin Kennelly won the nearest the pin award at the second.
