The winner of the Ron West Trophy competition was Mrs Jean McCaffery, in second place was Harry Langley and in third place was Carl Fernandes.
A total of £400 was raised through the raffles and match fees, and this included a cheque for £50 donated by the West family, for the winner to donate to their chosen charity.
The charities that Jean has chosen, each to receive an equal share, are the Prospect Hospice and MacMillan Nurses.
Our grateful thanks to all who took part in the competition and donated prizes for the raffle on the last evening, making the event a tremendous success
