Keith wins play-off to takes singles title

Have your say

The summer-long seniors knockout competition finals have been completed at Stoke Rochford Golf Club.

Singles champion is Keith Eddy, who won on the third extra hole against Don Werner when their match had ended all square after 18 holes.

The pairs final was a much more one-sided affair when Phillip Varley and Malcolm Edwards won 6&5 against seniors captain Mike Dickinson and Richard Leverett.

As a result, Phillip Varley became the first Stoke senior to win the pairs knockout three times - each time with a different partner.

The Plate Knockout winner was Ray Smith, who was on top form to win 7&6 against Trevor Harvey, the 2011 singles champion.

Stoke Rochford seniors beat Glen Gorse 6-2. Mike Dickinson & Malcolm Edwards won 1 up, Mick Rance & Peter Gill won 5&4, Don Clements & Brian Ayto won 3&2, Duncan Bennett & Tim Haward lost 4&3, Philip Varley & Barrie Griffin lost 2&1, Trevor Harvey & Eddie Plant won 4&3, Mike Graves & Cliff Mills won 2&1, and Joe Kime & John Smeeton won 2 up.
