As part of its celebrations the inaugural playing of the John Caney Centenary Cup took place at Sutton Bridge Golf Club.

The format was a team stableford competition of four players with two counting on each hole.

The weather was atrocious in the morning but the afternoon competitors had the best of the day.

The team of Stuart Gilbert, Phil Gilbert, Mick Wareham and Doug Morton managed a winning score of 86 points to take the trophy.

In second place were Steen Catlow, Jon Essam, Ralph Grimes and Bob Newby.

The golf was followed by a hog roast by the Hog Master of Spalding.

The event concluded with a raffle with the star prize being a framed autographed golf shirt, donated by the late Doug Wright’s widow, signed by 18 professionals including Ernie Els, Padraig Harrington, Mark O’Meara, Todd Hamilton, Colin Montgomerie.

The winner June Buswell generously offered the shirt back for auction and it was sold for a considerable price.
