Home advantage summarises this year's Crossley Trophy

Tuesday 17th April 2018

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Thanks for everyone turning out this Sunday at Malton & Norton. We would all appreciate the course conditions but outsiders should appreciate that scoring was not easy. CSS was calculated as plus 3 (74) which should give everyone a great idea about how tough it was.

Home players familiar with course conditions definitely took advantage and claimed three of the four net prizes on offer, including the top prize. Well done Scott Preston (M&N) with his score of 69 who finished a stroke ahead of Ian Charlton (M&N) on 70, whilst previous winner Carl Tyrer (Fulford) claimed third place. Rich Brown (M&N) claimed the final net prize with a level par 72 beating Nick Dyson (Fulford) and Kevin Magson (Kirkbymoorside) to the final prize.

There were also three Gross prizes on offer. Jamie Miller (Fulford) managed a superb 73, with the other prizes going to Nick Dyson for his 75, and Will Adamson (Sandburn Hall) with 76. Kevin Magson, also with 76, again lost out on countback


Fulford retain Team Championship title

Tuesday 19th September 2017

The Heslington outfit prevail in testing conditions at The Oaks...

Fulford held on to their Team Championship crown after prevailing in some testing conditions at The Oaks.

Heavy showers interspersed sunny intervals and made scoring difficult but the morning foursomes produced a superb 73 from Fulford pair James Cass and Ben Plaxton to put them on top going into the afternoon singles.

Even so, there wasn't much between them and York 'A', who were helped by their own fine foursomes score - a 74 from Tom George and Neil Ferguson.

In the afternoon, Rob Moore's 80 was followed by 73 from Damon Coulson, before the only sub-par round of the day - a 71 from James Cass - put Fulford out of reach. That score saw Cass collect the Issott Trophy for the best individual score on the day.

York 'A's best of the afternoon was 76 from Tom George and that kept them in second place. But Fulford finished 13 strokes clear.

Pike Hills 'A' recovered from a poor morning, which had left them in eighth place, as 74 from Lee Bond and Adrian Lount's 73 vaulted them up the leaderboard and into third.


Final four to showdown at Sandburn Hall in Union Matchplay finals day

Thursday 7th September 2017

Veteran Union player among those going for title on September 24...

York Union stalwart Jonathan Plaxton is among a fab four going for York Union Matchplay glory on finals day at Sandburn Hall.

Last year's Yorkshire Union President will meet fellow Fulford club mate George Robson in a clash of the generations at the Flaxton club on September 24 - as part of a day of thrilling action to decide the matchplay champion.

Plaxton has two Sandburn Hall scalps to his credit this year, having beaten both Bryan Wilson and Will Adamson 3&1 to reach the last four.

Robson, meanwhile, saw off Plaxton's son, Ben, in his opening match at the 19th hole. Now, following a walkover against Oliver Adamson, he will be looking to complete a father and son double.

In the other half of the draw, Mark Christie will take on James Pinkney. The latter defeated Lee Bond 4&3 in his last encounter, while Christie took a walkover from Malton & Norton's David Hague.

The two semi-finals start at 9am and 9.15am and spectators are welcome. The final will be played in the afternoon.
