* After a full bank holiday weekend of club competitions it was a quieter week for the Stoke Rochford ladies’ section.

In windy conditions on Saturday, the ladies played for the Burroughs Crystal Trophy.

Social member Jo Burroughs donated the trophy in 1978 and has also given a winner’s gift every year.

Once again Jo joined the ladies for afternoon tea and presented the winners with their prizes.

Karen Rawson won with a score of 92-20=72, three clear of Jane White (104-29=75) in second, with third-placed Sheila Dugmore (92-16=76) a further shot adrift.
