18 Aug 2017 : Sunshine brings out the best in players at Runcorn Linnets' Millbank Golf Day

Runcorn Linnets have chalked up another outstanding victory through the success of their annual Golf Day sponsored by club sponsors Millbank.

As the sun beat down and temperatures soared on the resplendent course at the traditional host Runcorn Golf Club, players raised their games to post some impressive scores.

Twelve teams of four contested the honours with the standard being set by a team led by Runcorn GC secretary (and Linnets player of the 1970s) Neil Kenwright.

The quartet - also including Tom Gibbons, Tony Gibbons and John Colquitt - won the event for a second time in three years with an outstanding 94pt Stableford score off handicaps ranging from five to 21.

Long-time supporters of the club, Apec Taxis (whose line-up featured Linnets junior coach Dean Kenningrton) are invariably high in the reckoning and they this time finished as runners-up with 84pts.

Barnton FC, one of the Linnets' nearest neighbours in the Hallmark Security League, entered a team and the tournament organisers were delighted to see them come through for third place.

Their line-up, led by first-team manager Steve Lloyd, edged out Runcorn Linnets' club accountants, Burton Beavan on a card play-off over the back nine holes.

In fifth place, a further point off the pace with 76, was a team captained by Linnets favourite of the 1990s, Ian Brady

At the evening presentations, Runcorn Linnets chairman, Mark Buckley thanked all concerned with organising and staging another excellent event along with the competitors, event and hole sponsors and those who had supported the raffle by providing prizes or buying tickets.

The Linnets' chairman paid particular tribute to the secretary, professional, catering and clubhouse staff of Runcorn Golf Club, adding that the Linnets were honoured to have again been granted the use of the excellent facilities on and off the course at Clifton Road.
