FORMER Henley town sergeant Cliff Austin and playing partner Richard Fenn won the Jim McDonald Trophy at Henley Golf Club on Sunday.

It was a close result as their 38 Stableford points, played in the St Andrews Foursomes format, were won on countback from the pairing of John Chaytor and Matthew Gladdish.

Gerald Davies and Mike Ellis were a point back in third place on countback from the pairings of Ross Belcher and Paul Thomalla, Jason Livy and Martyn Metcalfe and Andy Carmichael and Alvin Smith.

The seniors’ Stableford, played on Monday, was won by Kelvin Logan with a score of 40 points, which was two points better than runner-up David Frood.

Chris Messenger and Mark Farmar also recorded 38 points but missed out on second place on the countback rule.

Peter Falle, Steve Swiatek, Ian Norris and David Voss were the only other competitors in a field of 48 players who beat or equalled their handicap.
