Tavistock  Trophy Success yet again! - 17/04/2022


All the hard work during the winter training sessions on the range have clearly paid off after our great start to the season. 

Our first Tavistock match at home to Leighton Buzzard, Beds and County & John O’Gaunt ended in a comprehensive Victory.  The team included a great mix of experience and youth, with 2 debutants in the team.  Great performances from Will, Jacob and debutant Jack Skelton meant the team won by 20 shots.  Will came in with the second gross score, while Jacob and Jack secured the best nett scores, giving a very strong team score.  The team also comprised of debutant Jago, alongside veteran Ed with 2 solid performances.

The away match at John O’Gaunt gave way to 2 more players gaining a Tavistock Trophy appearance, with Jake Plumb and Jayden Slender coming into the team.  Jake’s experience was a major factor in the team’s performance as he led the team off to secure a vital lead.  Jayden secured a very good score, following an impressive finish.  Jacob shot another amazing score, despite his handicap continuing to fall.  Once again, the team was backed up by great rounds from Ed and Will.  The team secured another big victory, with a huge, 24-shot margin to 2nd placed Bed's and County. 

These 2 victories mean that Cainhoe top the table on 9 points from a possible 9 and just shows the strength of our junior section.  A great way to start to the Season!
