The two teams line up for the annual match

Last weekend saw one of the great events of the Rugby Golf Club calendar, as club captain Mark Ridley hosted the traditional match between his team and the club’s past captains led by immediate past captain, Duncan Snook.

In a fantastic turnout there were 25 past captains in all, with their captaincy years dating from 1975. Of the 25, 22 did battle in a tremendously close match of betterball matchplay.

In the lead match Mark Ridley, playing with his vice captain Chris Moran, took on Duncan Snook and 2013 captain Martin Weaver. Snook and Weaver were never behind in the match and finished comfortable winners 3 and 2.

A series of close encounters ensued - with the past captains just being pipped 6-5 in the match overall.

There were many stories and snippets of wisdom at the after match dinner in what remains a fantastic day for the club and all those involved.
