Congratulations to the Sherborne Scratch Team on winning the Stokes Salver competition for a third successive year on Sunday. The final held by the hosts at Yeovil Golf Club, saw Sherborne triumph in a very close match against Lyme Regis Golf Club.

With Lyme putting out a very strong side, it was 2-2 after the morning foursomes, but with Lyme having the decisive better foursomes result, crucial in the event of a tie.
