SEACROFT Juniors’ annual summer competition took place on a breezy but pleasant day, with a good field of 21 players.

Several trophies were up for grabs and the scoring reflected the intensity of the competition.

Walkers, Janet White and Pearla Clark, accompanied the younger members on their five hole and nine hole sections, and thanks are expressed to these two ladies.

The Hawkes cup, for the best gross, was won by Jamie Cartwright with a fine 83. Jamie also won the ‘nearest the pin’ on the 10th hole.

The Seacroft trophy, for the best net score, went to junior captain Robin Hunter-Clarke with an excellent 87, net 61, off a 26 handicap – a handicap which he will find will have been reduced by the weekend!

The Whitesmith trophy for the most improved player of the season had to go to Jack Downing, who started off the season on a 36 handicap which has rapidly reduced to 19 by this competition due to recent successes in other competitions.

His score of 88, less 19, net 69, and his second place in the Seacroft trophy has seen a further reduction to 18.

Winner of the junior monthly medals for both May and June was Charles Petrie.

The 18 hole, blue tees competition, the Nora Ling trophy, was won by Anthony Antoniou with a stableford score of 30 points.

Also on the blue tees competition, winner of the white cup (five holes), was Rocco Toombes with a score of 43.

The nine hole winner of the Dobson cup was Freddie Lawie with an excellent score of 62.
