Avenue Lift First Trophy Of The Season

Bradford Park Avenue’s officials were the winners at the club’s annual Golf Day, held at Northcliffe Golf Club last week.

The yearly competition, organised on behalf of the club by Roger Banks, was won by first-team manager Mark Bower, director of football Terry Dolan, secretary Colin Barker and stadium announcer Richard Griffiths.

They triumphed over 12 other teams with a winning score of 93 points on a drizzly Friday afternoon.

The competition was played in a Stableford format with two players scores to count at each hole, and all players contributed to the winning score.

That score was four points better than the second placed team, made up of Northcliffe members Alec Hird, John Anderson, Paul Metcalfe and Stuart Rogers, who were in fact last year’s winners.

Hopefully this was a good omen for the season with a solid performance throughout.

The first half performance of 44 points was improved with a second half performance of 49 points representing a score of 21 under par and no play-off required!!

A huge thank you to Roger for organising another excellent day, Northcliffe for being wonderful hosts, and everyone who played or in any way made the annual Golf Day a success! We will see you next year!
