2019 A38 Trophy

The course was filled yesterday, (12th July) for the annual playing of the Alfreton versus Swanwick match for the A38 trophy. The Captains this year were Chris Burnham and Steve Nutt who had selected their teams over the past few days, including some ‘guests’, hoping to strengthen their squads.

Swanwick were the current holders of the Trophy having held on to it after an exciting 7-7 draw in 2018. However, the updating of team kit from the traditional red to the new blue provided Alfreton with the change of luck they needed, they won back the cup with a 9-5 victory.

As the results started to come in Alfreton had the lead and the last groups on the course maintained the score that way. Well done to Chris and his team. A big thanks to all involved making it a great event full of competitive but friendly banter.

The post match food and beer went down well thanks to Donna and Steve. Additionally nearly £300 was raised for the Club on the night as well.
