Margaret Anderton won the Hunstanton Over 50's Tournament with Jeff Race coming second.

Sunny Hunny again lived up to its reputation over the week - end of 18/20th June when, it staged its annual over 50's three day tournament in weather more akin to mid winter in the South Atlantic rather than the Riviera east coast of the UK.

Despite the weather spirits remained high and on the final day the Egyptian formula produced three likely winners entering the final session. Nick Steiner (Colchester) looked to be in an unassailable position provided he saw of Bryan Saddington from the home club. However, Nick fell at the last hurdle leaving the field open to the winners of the game between Margaret Anderton (Bury) and Patricia Duke- Cox. Before the match Patricia mentioned to the Manager she had never beaten Margaret in competition, a prophesy that only proved to be to true as Margaret carried off The Jane Neville Rolphe Trophy.

Final Placings

1st Margaret Anderton (Bury)
2nd Jeff Race (Hunstanton)
3rd Nick Steiner (Colchester)
