2:00pm Saturday 12th October 2013 in Latest Sport
Woodford Golf Club’s 2009 club captain Mark Deeming won the Past Captains’ Cup on a count-back from 2005 captain Tony Olley on Saturday.
The two former skippers both returned scores of 40 stableford points but it was Deeming who emerged victorious.
Third, one point adrift, was 2006 captain Michael Jones, who slipped up with his putting on the 18th.
Twelve former club captains – among them John Peters, the current president of the Essex Golf Union – and the current captain competed in the event, which is in its 29th year.
The competition’s founder, Norfolk-based former captain and president Jim Coker, attended the dinner aftewards.
Club captain John Michael Wade and the 2003 captain Tom Steed captured the Seniors’ Shield by one stroke in a four-ball better ball stableford competition last week.
They scored 44 points, one more than runners-up Rob Gibson and Julian Greatrex, with Bernard Killick and Peter Rogers finishing third on 42 points.
Alex Lyons, the seniors’ captain, presented the shield to the winners.
