"What a great day!" was the general feedback from the 16 Old Lidunian golfers who played in the annual Penry Trophy yesterday at Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club. Under blue skies and light winds, the players took to the course in the 80th Anniversary game - for 80 years former pupils have battled for the same trophy and on the same golf course, which is a record we should be proud of.
Lancastrians overcame the recent resurgence of St Johns to be crowned the House Champions, and the fun prizes were picked up by Paul Beverley (Longest Drive on the 18th) and Jon Flitcroft (Nearest the Pin at the 9th).
In the main competitions, Jon Flitcroft retained the Handley Cup after a score of 31pts following his win last year. Paul Breedon was Runner Up for the umpteenth time for the Penry Trophy, which was won by Chris Hibbert with a great score of 35pts (photo of Chris with the Trophy under a portrait of Seve that hangs in the clubhouse).
Thanks to everyone for taking part, and we look forward to seeing you all next year to do battle again.
