On the 19th June our Pearson Team were victorious in winning the inter-club Pearson Trophy for the first time since 1972! This was a great reward for all the hard work by the team Captain, Linda Wray, her Assistant Captain Pat Rex, and by all the squad who were stalwart in winning all their matches to get Hendon to this position.   It was also Linda’s birthday so an extra special occasion for her.  

In the morning semi-finals they beat Ealing and Finchley beat Grim’s Dyke, so in the afternoon final a hard battle was fought against Finchley.  It was a nail-biting finish both in the morning and the afternoon.   Congratulations to the team of Clare Connolly, Clara Farmiloe, Vicki Stone, Elaine Wilson, Jennifer Tang, Julie Ellis and Jo Burke.  They were ably supported by their caddies – Diana Rowlands, Captain Lawrie Nicholl, Birgitte Karle, Junko Moriuchi, Felix Ko, Pat Rex and Monica Newton.

The team now go through to the semi-finals (and hopefully the final!) of the inter-county Pearson competition at Crews Hill on the 19th July.  

It was good to see so many supporters from Hendon throughout the day and the presentation was well attended by all the teams and their supporters.  

Congratulations and well done to all.
