John Leahy emerged victorious in the Little Hay Golf Club March Medal as he saw off a field of 27 players.

Leahy’s 68 was good enough for top spot in Division One, with Keith Muir one point behind in second, and Andy Lerpiniere taking third with 72.

The Division Two title went to Glen Mason, who shot 67, while James Morris was second with 70 and Steven Crowhurst was third with 72.

Meanwhile, the eighth and penultimate round of the Winter League saw He-Young and Steve Crowhurst top the board with 43 points.

This pulled them up into seventh place overall, but Glen Mason and Steve Rutherford held on to their position at the top of the leaderboard with 217 points from their five best rounds.

Just two points behind them, and tied for second place, are the teams of Jamie McIvor and Tom Butler and Rolf and Clare Stammeier.

Elsewhere, the Little Hay senior men held a team texas scramble on Tuesday, followed by a lunch and an auction in support of the Willow Foundation.

The winners of the scramble were the team of Mark Sheldrake, Lance Redler, David Garbutt and Trevor Sargent, who played 11-under-par to card a net 61. The event raised £230 for charity.

In other action, the Business Ladies’ March Medal was held on Saturday.

Pauline Manning took the honours with a score of 74 – one shot clear of Carol Kent and two ahead of Nicola Goddard.
