THE Lady Vets District team of Leigh Golf Club who have won the District Championship at Gathurst Golf Club, Wigan.
The weather wasn’t kind to all the players but the Leigh team dug in to post the best scores, admirably supported by their caddies as they battled through the often tough weather conditions.
Kath Birchall of Leigh also won Best Nett prize as Leigh Ladies swept the board and fellow team members June Rowland, Pat Twist, Pat Evans, Chris Johnson and Patsy Wilcock all played well. It was nail biting to the end with everything hinging on a good score from Chris Johnson and she came in, drenched but smiling.
Lady Captain, Janina Travers said: “We are absolutely delighted. I had told the team that I had written my winners’ speech as a motivational strategy but the girls took me literally and made sure that I had to use it. They’ve have had a phenomenal year. A fabulous team effort from a fabulous team.”
