Golf plays a big part in the family life of the Stephensons, with dad Adrian and sons Edward and George all involved with Leighton’s Plantation Road club where they have just been presented with trophies for their golfing skills.
Scratch golfer Ed won the Club and Junior championship and the Peter Taylor scratch competition, teaming up with his dad, brother and John Latimer to win the ClubTexas Scramble. Adrian and Ed also teamed up with John Latimer and Steve Leng to win the John Lally Texas Scramble.
And to cap it all, Junior Section Captain Ed has just been named the first winner of Leighton-Linslade Sports Council’s ‘Achievement in Sport’ award, shortly to be presented by the Town Mayor.
