Finalists Lynn Ashcroft & Kath Biddle

Kath Biddle and Lynn Ashcroft played the final of the Le Marchant Cup on Saturday 5th December on a very windy day. The cup was presented to the club in 1935 by Colonel and Mrs Le Marchant and the format of this competition is individual matchplay off full handicap difference. Kath also reached the final last year and was hopeful of succeeding second time around, but it wasn’t to be.

Lynn has enjoyed a very successful year and her good form continued on the day, making it very difficult for even the determined match player Kath to get the better of her. The windy conditions made play very difficult for both players and the match was close, with Lynn edging ahead around the turn and closing out the match on the 16th green.
