Impressive score gives duo the edge in keenly-contested cup
Ashby Decoy's regular Saturday Better Ball competition featured the prestigious Mayor's Cup.
This keenly-contested trophy was presented to the club by then Mayor Harry Skinner in 1970 and this year's winners were Darren Cowling and Shaun Hardiment.
They recorded an impressive 44 points – two clear of runners-up Chris Scott and Adrian Fixter who took second place on a count-back over Clive Curtis and Clyde Smith.
A further two points back, on 40, was the partnership of Gordon Samuels and Paul Vessey, also claiming this place on a better back nine.
