McDorrell Trophy 2012

23rd September 2012 - 24th September 2012 : Formby Hall

This year's event took place at Formby Hall, near Southport. The teams were:

Ian: Ian Mc, Ian Ayres, Mike Sutton, Sam Sutton, Richard Atkinson, Richard Bennett, Mike Briercliffe, Andy Bramley

Rob: Rob, Chris, Ken, Barry, Terry, Dave Slater, Bob and Mike

The Sunday afternoon fourballs ended 2:2 with newbies Terry and Barry thrashing Ian A and Mike B 6 and 5. The Sutton father and son team won 3 and 2, but Andy and Richard B lost 3 and 2. Ian Mc and Richard A beat Rob and Ken 3 and 1. 

So 2 apiece at the half way stage, then an early drinking session, followed by an early dinner and a late drinking session which saw the team demolish a £400+ bar tab,

Monday morning dawned and the promised rain arrived in typhoon-like proportions so the game was reluctantly abandoned, and the trophy was retained by Ian's team.

The consensus was the the course was excellent and the event will return to this venue in 2013.
