Stoke Rochford Golf Club seniors continued their fine home form with two wins in a week.

They opened with a convincing win against Blankney with only the captain’s game reaching the last green.

There were big wins, with Phil White and Barry Gaunt’s 8 and 6 victory surpassed by Greg Ewart and Tim Haward (8 and 7), the largest margin of the season.

The inaugural fixture against Beeston Fields was played on the wettest of days.

Beeston brought a strong team and gave shots in every game except the first, but the hosts secured a narrow win.
