With another very warm day at Wareham and a good breeze we were set once more for a good test for our young guns around the County for this year’s Cyril Nash Memorial Trophy event incorporating the English Junior Champion Club qualifier. The course fairways were quite bouncy but the greens looked and played superbly well and were very receptive. The scoring proved more difficult than in past years but all players did well. Oliver Rogers Wareham was back to defend his title won last year and set the target for all the others to beat coming home with a fine 40 points. This proved to be too good for the field although Daniel Porter Sherborne came home with a fine 39 points and Dudsbury player Alex Bryant 38. Congratulations to Oliver on winning and retaining the Cyril Nash Memorial Putter.
|First Place:||Oliver Rogers Wareham||40 points|

With no Wareham side this year it proved to be very tight between the clubs as to which team would win and go through to the English Champion Club event. Dudsbury B were holding the lead for a good while 0n 70 but then Sherborne B took the lead and with only two players they had a fine 72 points but the last card in which was Toby Boyde from the Parkstone A with a fine 37 to go with team mate Oscar Thomas’s 37 to give them and Gus Moxon the title with a fine team total of 74. Parkstone will now go forward to represent Dorset at this year’s Junior Champion Club event in August.
|First Place:||Parkstone A||74 Points|
|Second Place:||Sherborne B||72 Points|
|Third Place:||Dudsbury B||70 Points|
