Good news for Carol is that she doesn’t have to travel as far next year to defend her title because it is being played at Hickleton.


Meanwhile, in the SUGC League, Rotherham suffered their first defeat of the season, going down 5-3 at Sickleholme.

Lucas Martin maintained his unbeaten record this season with a comfortable win and Richard Bee holed a swinging 16 footer on the last to claim a half, those  two providing Rotherham’s points on the day. 

In the top division’s other game involving local clubs, Wath were beaten 6-2 at Abbeydale.
