The Cyril Gray Tournament is an over 50s foursomes competition for three pairs and is held each June for 32 of the participating Halford Hewitt Schools. 'Liverpool' reached the first final in 1971 when we came up short against Wrekin. Some 45 years later, in 2016, success was at last achieved when Rossall were defeated in that year's final. 

Last June, our squad of Tim Apel and Tom Kinloch; Jono Greenough and Peter Desmond; and Captain, Mark Horton and Mike Greenough overcame Canford (2-1), Dulwich (2.5 - 0.5), Wrekin (2-1), and Stowe (2-1) before, again, coming up against north-west rivals, Rossall, who were defeated by two matches to one.

We salute the team on its magnificent achievement and wish all OL golfers the best of fortune when they return to the fray.

CG Winners 2016:
Mark Horton, Robin Ruddock, Peter Desmond, Jono Greenough, Andy Hinds & Richard Hughes
