COTTESMORE’S ladies golfers won a nailbiting Morrice Fours competition to cap a fine year of competition.

The Sussex County Ladies Golf Association matchplay event went down the wire, with two matches going to the final green and one to the 16th as they beat Willingdon at Singing Hills Golf Club.

Iona McKean led the team of Linda Adamson, Irene Matheson, Brenda Williams, Annette Walsh and Ann Morgan to the notable victory, while Margaret Mitchell, Val Daniels, Ruth Leatherbarrow, Pat Johns and Margaret Swatman helped the team through the knockout stages to reach the final.

Captain Iona said: “What would we do without our loyal supporters?  They come in all weather and are a great support.  I am sure they are worth an extra shot or two. They kept us updated with progress of the team and giving us encouragement all the way round. Many, many thanks: as a club we are lucky to have such involvement with members.
