Letchworth defeat Stoke Park
A strong Letchworth team overcame Stoke Park by 4 matches to 2 at Sudbury GC on Sat 14th April
After all the recent rainfall, conditions underfoot were challenging, to say the least. Nevertheless, the match was played in a competitive, sporting manner. With Letchworth emerging from their 2017 Herts Scratch League season with a 100% record, they quickly established a lead over Stoke Park by 5-1 at halfway. Stoke fought back on the back nine to rescue another point, leaving the final score 4-2 to Letchworth, the first time a Herts League team has won this trophy.
After the match, the trophy was presented to the winning captain, Charles McKay, by the Captain of Sudbury Golf Club, Mr Tejinder Soor.
