Well done to Mark Channell on winning the first Stonham Footgolf Players Championship with a great score of 51 (7 under par). Mark, who is the Diss Town Youth FC Secretary, brought down a group of boys from the club and showed them how it was done. There were four players on 54 (4 under par), Chris Tranter, Darren Wheat, Dan Ferretti (UK Footgolf) and Ian Heydon. Darren and Ian are ranked in the UK’s top 50 players.
The junior event was dominated by the Diss Town Youth FC boys who took eight out of the top ten places. Well done to Daniel Whyman who scored a 65 and won on count back from Jamie Channell who also scored a 65. It was great to see so many juniors playing in this event (15 played) and well done to the youngsters from Ipswich Exiles who were all under 13.
We had two holes in one on the day. Both were on the 10th hole with one from Craig Bolger and the other from junior, Chris Disney.
