Robert is Club Champion

Four-handicap Robert Setchell won the Neville Bishop Trophy and was crowned as Thetford Golf Club's Champion on Sunday.

Robert, who runs a guest house in Ely, returned cards of 75-78-153 to win by three from last year's junior captain, Dean Scott, who came in with 78-78-156. Dean, who plays off 9, had the consolation of taking the handicap prize with two nett 69s.
Robert said in his winner's speech that he had won the Junior Club Championship at Ely in 1971 when he was 11 and he has been trying to win a Club crown ever since then. He managed it at the age of 57.
