Stoke Rochford golfers gathered to compete and remember a popular former club-mate.

Dick Bagshaw was an active and popular member of the club’s seniors section until his untimely death in 2006.

Shortly before his passing, Dick presented the seniors with his Bagshaw Bowl for annual competition in aid of the Prostate Cancer Charity.

Last week 47 Stoke seniors competed in the event which was organised by Mike Nixon with support throughout by Roger Nicholls.

A total of £500 was raised to take the overall total of £5,575 in the 10 years of competition.

Dick’s son Duncan again attended and presented the bowl to the winner Phil White who scored a magnificent 41 points on the hottest day of the year.

Close behind in second place with 40 points was Don Clements, with Barry Mitchell third with 39 points.
