Ermysted’s Old Boys v Old Giggleswickians – Weds 20th June 2018

The annual fixture took place at Skipton Golf Club. Having been whitewashed last year, it was pleasing to regain the Craven Plate 3 games to 1. Tom Wilman and Fraser Picken, Len Price and Tony Barrett and Tom Ashworth and Chris Windle won their games, whilst David Croll and Brian Strickland narrowly lost. A pleasant meal followed in the Clubhouse which was enjoyed by all.

Ermysted’s Old Boys v School – Mon 16th July 2018

The Old Boys held the annual game of golf against the School at Ghyll, competing for the AD Taylor Tankard. With the Old Boys not having won outright since 2009 they were keen to do well. A hard fought game ensued, not decided until final pairing Andy Holmes (captain) and Chris Windle fought back to halve their game against F Clark and C Wood. Tony Barrett and Gerald Corrigan lost their game 3&1, Tom Ashworth and Ken Wilkinson stormed to a 5&4 win over J Midgley and B Dixon, whilst Sam Stewart and Len Price won their game 2&1 against S Pilling and O Verot.

Yet more success for the Old Boys following their win against Old Giggleswickians recently! A pleasant buffet followed in the Clubhouse after the game. Our thanks are due to the Directors of Ghyll who allowed us free use of their course which was in first class condition.
