SILVER SHIELD FINAL - SUNDAY 10th SEPTEMBER
Crondon Park and Chelmsford lined up against each other for the Silver Shield Final at Boyce Hill in what turned out to the a wonderful match. This was Crondon’s first year in the Shield and to reach the final was a great achievement in itself. It was hot out there yesterday and Boyce HILL certainly lived up to its name, hills, hills and more hills!! The course was in great condition and Crondon battled hard with many of the matches going to the last few holes! Chelmsford had fielded a very strong team all with handicaps 7 and below and finally they were just too strong for Crondon. All matches were played in a great spirit. It was a very special moment to see the delight of the Crondon team when their captain Joanna Lilliot picked up the runners up prize! Well done to Chelmsford on winning but well done to everyone for a great display of golf and a great display of sportsmanship and friendship! A big THANK YOU to Boyce Hill for hosting and to the referees who gave up their time to manage the matches!

SILVER TROPHY FINAL - SUNDAY 3rd SEPTEMBER
Warley Park and Chelmsford were at Braintree GC for Silver Trophy Final. The standard of golf was exceptional and every match was hard fought. Chelmsford went 2 matches up Warley Park quickly back and the score stood 2 -1. Warley took the 3rd match and so the teams stood two games each with the final match going up the 18th all square! Both players were level on the green. Chelmsford holed leaving Warley Park with a putt for a half and take the match to extra holes. You could hear the silent as Warley Park’s ball rolled towards the hole and just slipped past on the low side! Of the Chelmsford crowd went wild - the Trophy was theirs! Very well done to Warley Park for making the final and putting up such a great fight the match could have gone either way. Thanks to Braintree for hosting the course as in wonderful condition and to the referees - what would we do without you.
