Well done to the Harris Cup squad on reaching the final with an overall 12 shot victory over Hadley United Services Club in the semi-final.

Seniors Success

Bylet will be sure of winning the Mid-Shropshire Seniors Charity Shield because both Bylet A (Division 1) and Bylet B (Division 3) have reached the final to be played on Thursday 27th September. In the semi-finals, the A side had a comfortable 26 shot victory with all six winners against Mortimer at Squirrel while the B side made full use of their +24 handicap to edge out Division 1 opponents White Horse HUSC by 1 shot at Shifnal.

Congratulations to both teams.

23rd Ludlow League Handicap Cup Success

Congratulations to Jane Wherton and her Ludlow League team on winning the League Handicap Cup at Chelmarsh. In the semi-final Bylet beat Cleobury by 6 shots in what League Secretary Steve Burmingham called a 'shock victory' (Cleobury failing to overcome a -40 shot handicap). In the final Bylet overcame Bromfield by 86 shots making a bit of a mockery of their +106 shot handicap with excellent wins by Sue Corfield, Dave Durant, Fiona Hammond, Geoff Carnell & Neal McLachlan. See photo below.
