Summertown Trophy

Summertown Trophy Winners 2015

Banbury Chestnuts were again hosts of the Summertown Trophy final’s day, with 10 qualifying teams from across the County battling it out for the £1,000 prize money – all teams playing each other over 7 ends in a round-robin format.

With 4 games gone it was Carterton B leading the pack with +14 shots, closely followed by 3 sides on +9. After lunch, Watlington B won their next 3 games to climb to +22, with a 7 point gap over 2012 winners Banbury Borough and Banbury Central A. However with just 2 games to go Carterton B had put themselves back in contention with a 9 shot win over Watlington to throw the competition wide open again.

Going into the last round there were still a number of sides still in contention – Carterton B needed their A side to defeat new leaders Banbury Central, plus Watlington and defending champions Headington B were also still hoping for results to go their way. Despite wins for Watlington B and Headington A in their final game, they still fell short of Banbury Central A’s +20 total and the Banbury side claimed 1st prize in the closest ever Summertown Final competition.

Andy Wilkin, Lee Young, Graham Morbey, and Nigel Galletly were winners for Central, leaving Watlington A to claim second prize and the Astall Ley trophy, with Headington B finishing third.
