MARSDEN Park Golf Club hosted the Melville Wood Cup recently.

An Adult/Junior Texas Scramble, the winners, with 53 points, were N. Lingard and A. Wormwell.

Second, with the same 53 points, were L. Tomlinson and W. Brearley, with T. Long and B. Long third, a point adrift.

Fourth, also with 52 points, were C. Robertson and C. McGuire.

Best visitors were L. Noon and A. Astall with 51 points.

THE annual Kass Jedd Memorial trophy match was fished by 21 anglers last Sunday on Lowerhouse Lodge.

There were two section wins for N. Roberts (11-5-0) and G. Fearn (10-9-0).
