POSSESSION of a miniature toilet bowl trophy has become so intense a full complement of 72 men and women lined up to compete for the porcelain prize at Newton Green Golf Club.

Each year the women of the club challenge the seniors to compete for the trophy, when there are normally about 20 players from each side.

However, this year there were 36 ladies and the same number of men from the senior section lining up to do battle, and seniors’ section captain Peter Webb reluctantly had to hand the tiny water closet to ladies’ captain Jill Symonds after her team were victorious by 11.5 to 6.5 holes.

Closest to the hole winners during the day were: 2nd Mick Barlow, 6th Jill Freeman, 11th Paddy Lockwood, 13th Odette Ford, 16th Steve Cragg and Steve Street, 18th Peter Webb.
