Home players lead the way at Senior Captain's Open

It was a very close finish but two pairs from the host Club ended at the top of the pile at Gary Goodchild's Senior Captain's Open.
John Carpenter and Peter Yule played in the first group of the day and came in with 42 points - and that proved to be enough to win the day.
Thetford Vice-Captain Bob Pearson - playing with borrowed clubs after forgetting to bring his own! - partnered Alan Hitchborn to collect 41pts, taking second place on countback thanks to a back nine of 22pts.
Barnham Broom pairing Mike Ladbrook and Tim Mitchell (41 and 21 on the back nine) were third, with John Williams and Roger Davies of Stoke-by-Nayland fourth with 41 and 19. Braintree's John O'Connor and Alastair Stalker were unlucky to miss out on the prizes with 41 and 18.
The day began grey and overcast but there were only a couple of late showers and the course was looking very green after recent rain. 
The nearest the pin prizes went to John Williams (Stoke-by-Nayland), Trevor Cave (Eaton), Jim Robertson (Spalding) and Terry Ryan (Ely City).
There were 46 pairs in all representing 36 different Clubs from all over the Eastern region.
