The Final of the 2022 Felmingham Trophy was successfully held at Ealing G.C. on Monday 26th September 2022 after 2 years of no competition through the Pandemic and many subsequent rearrangements.
It was between Highgate G.C. and Enfield G.C. both competing for the first time in a Felmingham final. The rain held off, the course was in excellent shape and so were the two teams.
After all the 9 matches had completed their games the score was level (4 1/2 – 4 1/2) a true reflection of the strengths of both teams. A play off was therefore necessary and as per the rules it was down to the last active match to go down the 1st again. A successful 12ft putt by the Highgate player settled the match and the Trophy going to Highgate. The match was followed by the customary meal and presentation of the Trophy and individual medals.
Ray Trainor, the Ealing lead Felmingham organiser, thanked both Clubs for their combined support and congratulated both teams for their excellent performances in reaching the Final and their friendliness during the match and throughout the meal.
Both team Captains, George Young of Enfield and David Pascall of Highgate responded and thanked Ray and his committee for getting the competition back on track and both look forward to the next opportunity to compete again in 2023. The Felmingham Honours board will now be having a new Club name…well done Highgate.
