The final of the 2018 Powell Cup was held on Sunday 7th October at Ashridge, the home club of Mrs. Shirley Aylwin who established this competition. It was a typically autumnal day which started quite chilly but warmed up quickly when the sun came out.
The finalists were Mill Green, represented by sisters, Aly and Julie Nedza, and Welwyn Garden City (last year’s runners up), represented by Kelly Hutcherson and Esther Strous.
The first few holes were halved, but after 6 holes Mill Green were 2 up. Welwyn fought back and after 9 holes, it was back to all square and after 12 holes it was 2 up to Welwyn Garden City. Thereafter Welwyn kept their lead and the final result was that they won 3&2.
Thanks go to Robin Colbourne, the referee for the day, and to Ashridge for hosting this final again.
My thanks also go to all the clubs who took part, especially as all matches were played by the due date and results reported promptly!
