On St George’s day (23rd April) Gorleston Seniors won the Hodds Salver for the first time since they entered the competition in 2013.

The team consisting of Colin Laws, Ivan Harvey, Brian Rivett (Capt), Billy Haykin, George Laverick, Pat Sterry, Ron Clayton and Tony McCarthy had performed admirably in the previous rounds but the final at Eaton Golf Club proved to be a nervous affair with players having to scramble on occasion to stay in contention. However it did produce a tense match with the result in doubt until the last group came down the eighteenth.

Ivan and Colin in the first group quickly established a four hole lead that was never relinquished. However the other three groups were experiencing problems with the lead fluctuating back and forth and no clear indication as to what the final result might be. After nine holes the Gorleston team were only one up but they managed to find the necessary resolve to push on and claim victory. A special mention to Ron Clayton who’s shot into the eighteenth green ensured victory for the final group and the overall win.

C. Laws /I Harvey won 4-0
B Rivett /W Haykin. A/S.
G Laverick /P Sterry lost 0-1
R Clayton /T McCarthy won 2-0

Well done to the Gorleston Team Captain (and Senior’s President) Brian Rivett who’s time and effort in producing a winning team was invaluable. Thanks also to Peter Aldred and Angus Smith who played in the earlier rounds and to all the players and supporters who made the match such an enjoyable victory.
