THE annual summer matchplay trophy at Bay View Golf Club has been retained by Chris Mottershead, after the tightest of finals.

In the earlier rounds, Chris had overcome the delays and disappointments of a summer of rain to dispose of Eve Wenham, Bob Langridge and Roger Sherwood.

His opponent in the final was Tony Morris – who eventually succumbed at the nineteenth hole.

Bay View members also competed this week in an 18-hole Stableford event for the Clive Winter Cup, named after the club manager. The winner was Elsie Reeves, with 40 points.

Runner-up on countback was Mark Jarvis, one point behind, with third place going to Les Dervish, also a point behind on 39.
