At the end of August, the Ferrets played for the ‘2 Sheds Jackson’ Trophy. Keith Jackson was a founder member of the Ferrets and because he owned 2 beach huts, he was nicknamed ‘2 Sheds Jackson.’ Keith passed away 2 years ago, and to mark the day, this was the second playing of the trophy. The winner this year was the rabbi – Nigel Anderson with 38 points on countback from Hamish Stubbs. Andy Sylvester was third with 35 points.

And it was a ‘hat trick’ week for Margaret Dean, winning her third event. This time it was the Granny’s Cup, a 10-hole stableford event. Dean had an amazing 26 points. Caroline Gard, also on a winning streak, was in second place with 23 points. And Loraine Motion finished third with 22 points.
