I’m pleased to report that we managed to retain the Old King’s Club v. Old Kingstonians trophy on 18 September by a score of 3-2. Quite an exciting day, as we were level until the end of the last match.

As the OKs remarked, this was the closest they have come to winning the trophy. It now has OKC as the winner for every year we have played for it since ints inception in 2013. In fact we have won the match with/without the trophy since we first met in 2010.

Individual results were:

Druckman and Phillips – Won 4 and 3

Taylor and Gregory – Lost 6 and 5 to a very fine performance by their captain, Richard Wickerson – no shame here!

Gems and Damon – Lost 2 and 1

Grover and Messent – Won by 2 holes

McGinn and Lovett – Won 4 and 2
