This is a foursome knock-out competition for over 50s, played annually at Worplesdon Golf Club, Woking, Surrey.
Trent produced an OT team comprising Chris Rainsford, Miles Raven, Graheme Sanders, David Harrison, Terry Lethbridge, Mike Ingle and Chris Cutts.
In the first round we played Whitgift, who beat us by 2 matches, with 1 match halved (Terry and Chris R.) In the first round of the Plate competition, we beat Taunton 2 matches to 1, our victors being Graheme and Mick (3/2), and Terry and Chris R. (5/4).
We went on to meet Framlingham, who beat us by 2 matches, with one halved (Terry and Chris R. again).
We are starting to struggle in this competition as we are all ageing. Would any OT golfers approaching or over 50 years of age please let us know if you would be available to represent the School in this prestigious event. It would be a great pity if we had to pull out as they would easily find a replacement school and we would never be able to get back in as a new generation of OT golfers reach 50, since there are 32 teams exactly.
The schools competing are:
Ampleforth, Whitgift, Taunton, City of London, Fettes, Berkhamstead, Rossall, Stowe, Edinburgh Academy, Dulwich, Watson’s, Glenalmond, Blundell’s, Merchiston, St Paul’s, Merchant Taylors’, St Bees, KES Birmingham, Brighton, Framlingham, Chigwell, Epsom, Wellingborough, Canford, Wrekin, Eastbourne, Liverpool, King’s Canterbury, Gresham’s, Bishop’s Stortford, Stoneyhurst and Trent.
