Despite Beadlow Manor juniors bowing out in a rain-affected semi-final of the JTG event played on temporary greens at Bridgwater in Somerset, recent results in the Vale League did see a title won..!!
Beadlow took the league on countback from Woburn. Both teams finished on 9 points after 6
matches with an identical ‘for and against’ record of individual rubbers so it was decided on the head-to-head which Beadlow won, beating Woburn 4-2 in their last match away on the Duchess Course at Woburn.
This result saw Beadlow Manor travel to Harewood Downs last week to represent the Vale League and play against the winners of the Chiltern League (the home club) and the Thames
Valley (Castle Royle) for the Bert Yates Trophy.
Teams of 6 using the stableford scoring format (with 4 scores to count) took on a challenging course, with immaculate and lightning quick greens. Loveard, Munson and Hay were joined by Harry Lake (hcp 10), Robbie Simpson (hcp 15) and Will Chapman (hcp 29) in the team. Loveard again led the way with 34 points, followed by Munson, Simpson and Hay, all with 32 points.
The resulting total of 130 saw Beadlow pip the hosts by 3 points with Castle Royle in third, to secure a second competition win in as many weeks and a successful end to the junior season.
