The Wiltshire Seniors Scratch Winter League 2011 / 2012 has once again been won by Marlborough, who have now won it 3 times out of 4. Mick Green and his team lost only one match which was the away match at Hamptworth. Mick said "it has been a great team effort this year with everyone contributing throughout. Well done to all those who have helped me make it a winning team, that's Hugh Crossan, Geoff Laney, Dave Lewis, Alf Norman-Thorpe, Derek Perkins, Guy Piercy, Rod Trimboy and Brian Wood."

Marlborough have also succeeded in taking the inaugural Seniors Inter Club Winter Trophy for players of sixty years or over with a handicap between 0-18. This is a competition devised by Graham Jefferies, a past seniors captain at Marlborough Golf Club.

Graham commented "during my captains year I quickly realised there was a strong competitive spirit amongst a great number of seniors, and some of them were going to be hardy enough to put their golf games on the line during the winter months, so I got busy with the e mails. I was lucky enough to find support from Cumberwell Park, Ogbourne Downs. Donnington Grove, Salisbury South Wilts, Sandford Springs and of course Marlborough.

As it turned out, and to cut a long story short, the final was to be contested between Marlborough and Ogbourne Downs over 36 holes, 18 at Marlborough and 18 at Ogbourne. The outcome of that was Marlborough 7 Ogbourne Downs 1 so Marlborough succeeded with an overwhelming victory."

Following this John thanked his winter squad of Barrie Reardon Smith, Grant Talman, Mike Courtney, Graham Daws, Dave Ferris, Gordon Buckett, Phil Smith, Hugh Crossan, Brian Wood and Graham Jefferies; he was clearly delighted at being a part of this winning double and added "we play 38 matches throughout the summer, and then it goes a bit flat, so this has prolonged our competitive spirit a little longer, we look forward to next year."
