MIXED CUP 2018

MIXED CUP PROVIDES EXCITING FINISH TO ORDER OF MERIT

This re-arranged event after a previous 'wash-out' was held again at Brighton and Hove under sunny skies but with a sharp chill in the air. For the Order of Merit either West Hove or Dyke could have been triumphant depending on results of this day.
Morning matches:- Brighton & Hove beat East Brighton   and West Hove beat Dyke GC.
After lunch, West Hove were favourites to take the Victor Ludorum but Dyke could still possibly have won if West Hove lost to the home club..However...

Finals results:-  For The Plate..Dyke defeated East Brighton - and in the Mixed Final WEST HOVE beat Brighton & Hove in a very close battle with both clubs winning 2 and half matches. So Count Back of holes up came into operation...2 of the matches were won by West Hove with large margins so count back result was 13/5. 
This meant that West Hove also won the Victor Ludorum Trophy for the first time in 11 years!!. Well done West Hove.

The Victorious West Hove team..Gary Salt, Jan Seabrook, Keith Fender, Pete Rodger,
Tony Humphrey, Lynne Henshaw, Julie James, Jeff Rhodes, Michelle Tyson and Grace Shepherd
