Grafton Morrish Trophy qualifier

Hymers travelled to Huddersfield Golf Club on Sunday 11 July for the northern qualifier of the Grafton Morrish Trophy

Hopes were high of a return to the finals in early October at Hunstanton GC in Norfolk when the date was pushed back due to Covid reasons. On paper, 2021 could have been the best team assembled since the 80s with a youthful looking team which included some very low handicaps.

 

Sadly, a clash of dates with a Yorkshire event meant that George Clark was unable to make his OH debut, but recent leavers Will Saville and Alex Limb came into the team for their first taste of Fixby! Two other late withdrawls meant ‘veterans’ Ian Jones and team captain Jonathan Clark and were brought in to make up the six.

 

Played over the hilly Huddersfield course with punishing rough, scratch foursomes takes no prisoners and so it transpired. The father / son duo of Matthew and Alex Limb had the team’s best return of 26 points, but Ian and David Page and Jonathan and Will couldn’t back that up and Hymers were left 14 points off the qualifying mark. Leading qualifiers were Sedbergh with an incredible 94 points!

 

So, planning will start for the 2022 campaign which should revert back to its usual May date. Any single figure players out there who wish to be considered can contact Jonathan Clark on 07972 335693.
