The annual golf match for the Rose Bowl Trophy was won this year by the team from Marlborough Golf Club. In spite of valiant efforts by the Town Council team, ably captained by Senior Groundsman, Ryan Atcherley, we conceded defeat to Marlborough Golf Club. Our thanks go to Ryan, Nigel Weatherly, Mike Tupman, Aaron Presley and the players from the 4th Military Battalion who made up our team.
The Mayor handed over the trophy to the home team giving his congratulations to the Marlborough Team Captain for his team's great performance. Our thanks go to the Club in particular Club Captain Trish King and to Alan Pryor for their hospitality in again hosting this event. We're already looking forward to next year's competition!
