Tuesday 22nd August saw the eagerly anticipated semi final of the Beaumont Trophy against Brett Vale at Fynn Valley Golf Club. Seniors’ captain Aly Andrews kept with the same squad that had brilliantly won their quarter final match at Gorleston in July. The atmosphere at the first tee was fairly tense & all players became visibly more relaxed once they’d sent their tee shots away. It was nip & tuck over the first part of the contest but as the afternoon wore on the opponents’ experience of a longer course became apparent. In the end, Brett Vale ran out worthy winners. Once again, the friendly nature of the contest was admirable & we wish Brett Vale well in their final.
Reaching the semi final of this prestigious tournament is a remarkable achievement for St Audry’s. The team of (from left to right) John Chapman, Frank Wilson, Aly Andrews (captain), Mike Hammond, Malcolm English, Rob Haste, David Leech & Eddie Barnes should feel very proud of themselves.
