Ganton Golf Day 2023

Old Hymerians v Old Pocklingtonians Golf Match 2023
17 Aug 2023
Written by Jonathan Leafe

The third outing of the Friendship Trophy, Old Hymerians v. Old Pocklingtonians was played at Ganton Golf Club on Wednesday, 9th of August, with ten players a side.

An early OHA lead was taken in the clubhouse, which quickly became two apiece. The last match still out on the course, would be the decider.

A very hard-fought battle ended in a draw with a valiant fightback from Martin Cocker and Gary Evison, who were down three holes at one point, secured the half on the 18th to half the match overall for the second year in a row.

Thank you to all the OHs that turned out - see you all next year.
