September Medal:The fabulous September Medal was at stake at the Old Links last weekend and it was club champion Neville Holden who blew away the field. His marvellous straight driving and precision iron play resulted in a gross 68, nett 64, to win by 3 shots. His nearest challenger was Barry Punton whose nett 67 was just not good enough. He was followed by Charlie Hindhaugh, Dazman and Paul Gray whose scores of nett 69 were only good enough for sweep money. The big winner on the day was Dave Arkwright whose strategy won him a triple twos pot of over £90.

Scores: N.Holden 68-4=64;J.B.Punton 77-10=67;N.Brown 85-16=69,D.Hindhaugh 74-5=69, P.Gray 79-10=69 (back nines)

The final junior competition was the Autumn Trophy and for the second week running Freddie Bremner held off Daniel Cooke by 2 shots to triumph. Scores: F.Bremner 100-30=70;D.Cooke 86-14=72.
