Golfing partners Steve Richardson and Paul Ellam potted a birdie just a hole from home to win Leighton
Buzzard golf club’s Mens Foursomes challenge.
The successful duo are pictured receiving the Denis Jordan trophy from Immediate Past President Robbie John.
Paul, 61, a Leighton member for 18 years, and Steve, 56, got off to a flying start against former club captain and ex-President David Hawkins and two-times club champion Paul Atkinson, who dug in to square the match with three holes to play. But a missed shot on the 16th and a timely birdie from Steve on the 17th determined the final outcome.
Peter Sheridan and Simon Thornton are the latest qualifiers for the Leighton Captain’s Cup final to be played on April 4, scoring 42 points to beat Steve Hammond and Neil Laming and Brian Wilson and Nigel Barnes for a place in the final. They now join Dharm Naveen Diwaker and Steven Tyas, Phil Coumbe and John Ager, John Tarbox and Graham Hazell, Alan Smith and John McSweeney, and Darren Valentine and Steve Richardson in the April 4 final shoot-out.
