Here are some results from recent matches.

Challenge Trophy Sunday 24th July 2016
The L’Ancresse Seniors v R.J.G.C Seniors match was played on the 24th July. Jersey were late in arriving being delayed by one hour because of fog at the airport.
Therefore it was decided to play the match over four, 4 ball better ball matches, instead of 8 singles. This allowed time for lunch and the presentation after the match. Jersey brought over a strong side with some notable names ( Cap’t Rob Leader, Robbie Messervy, Mick Le Feuvre, Micky Burne, Terry Smith, Vic Bougoise, Steve Rafferty and Stuart Crossan.)
The result of the four 4 ball better ball matches went very well for L’Ancresse with a win by 3 1/2 matches to 1/2.
This was also another trophy to go back in the cabinet this year.
The Henderson match play final was played in June. This was won by Garry Wade beating Mark Bertrand 3 and 2, the presentation was made at the Royal Golf Club.
