ROOKERY Park will meet Stowmarket in the final of the Parks Trophy, the Suffolk Golf Union seniors' inter-club knockout, at Thorpeness on September 6.

Both semi-finals were closely contested. St Audry's and Stowmarket were level as the pairs went through the ninth. In the end Stowmarket won through by three holes after many an anxious moment.

Flempton won two of their four matches against Rookery Park but the overall score ended in favour of the side from Lowestoft.

Mike Rees was struggling with a sore back in the Rookery Park top pair, but all appeared to be going well when he and David Porter were three up with five to play. Flempton had other ideas, Charlie Reed and Brian Field won the final five holes.

Both matches were played in an excellent spirit.
