Balmy evening in Kirkella golfing

Double delight for the Clarks

On a balmy evening at Hull Golf Club on 8 September, 24 Old Hymerians gathered to for the annual golf tournament. Five trophies were at stake over the tough Kirk Ella layout with the rough being particularly punishing.

George Clark (1), playing in his first event as an Old Hymerian, scorched around in 72 to take the Scratch Cup from former school golf team-mate Will Saville (+1) who shot 77. Will is about to begin his second year at Sheffield University, whilst George is heading north to Newcastle. Both will hopefully be the premier pair for the Grafton Morrish scratch team for many years to come.

Jonathan Clark (9) took the Chambers Cup for the best stableford score in Division One with 37 points. He just edged out last year’s Scratch winner Finlay Ulrick (9) who had 35. Division Two honours went to Lewis Parkinson (12) who took home the Palmer Trophy again with a best of the day 37 points (on back 9) from new recruit Joseph Walker (18).

Sadly Edward Clark  (22) could not complete an unprecedented treble for the Clark family as The Kenneth Clark Veterans Trophy went to Julian Wild (18) with 32 points on countback from the ever consistent Allan Craig (24).

At the other end of the age scale, a new category was introduced this year. The Bastow Trophy had been played for by Hymers students from 1981 when Andrew Edmond took the tankard. It went missing in 2010, but has recently resurfaced under the stairs in the main hall! Therefore it was redesignated as an under 30s prize for this year and will hopefully attract students to play in this event next year should dates and tee times permit [watch this space!] Joel Chapman (10) prevailed with another of the evening’s 37 points, three clear of Dan Couch (27).

Great to see so many new faces (especially from younger OH members), and look out for the date next year on the OH website and social media.
