They now boast a seven-point advantage over second placed White Hart B who won by the narrowest of margins when edging out Victoria A with former table-toppers Sports Club Lions down in third.

Rally Club moved up the table when taking maximum points at Climbing Ivy while an 11-0 victory was also secured by East Taphouse following their visit to British Legion.

An outshot of 111 from Keith Allen, was the highlight of White Hart A's 6-5 win over Victoria B while also winning by the odd game of 11 were Cheesewring when hosting Con Club.

Liberal Club B are still looking for their first victory of the campaign after losing 8-3 to Marquee Bar while Cornish Ivy won 9-2 away at Butchers Arms

White Hart B will begin the New Year with a seven-point advantage at the top of the table after securing all but one of the seven points that were on offer when hosting Con Club.

The Gypsies consolidated second spot with a 5-2 victory over Ivy Belles while Liberal Club move into the top five after a 6-1 defeat of Marquee Bar.

The Gypsies defeated Ivy Belles by a 5-2 margin while Ivy X, Cheesewring and Butchers Arms were all winners by the odd game in seven.

LISKEARD-LOOE LEAGUE:

Sportsmans and Rally Club are still neck and neck at the top of the table after they both emerged 8-3 winners.

ST ENODOC TOM NOGGI MATCH:

The Christmas golf programme finished with the Tom Noggi a 4 Ball Better Ball match between teams captained by the professional Nick Williams and general manager Tuck Clagett.

There were 19 matches to be played in what turned out to be ideal conditions with none of the threatened rain, the only problem being that a lack of light could have played a part in the last few matches; thankfully the last game, which was halved on the last green, was clearly visible by one interested member on the webcam.

After the first eight matches it looked as if Nick Williams might at last win as his team was leading 6–2 at this stage with fine wins from Tony Rounsevell & Keith Willmott 4&3 and also Sam Jarvis & Kevin Cornford by the same margin.

What followed then was a middle order collapse with the next 7 games all going Tuck's way with strong victories for Kenton Williams & John Carhart (4&3) Geoff Jones and Ken Perring (4&3), John Arnold & Keith Hawke (4&2) and the biggest margin of the day 6&5 for Charles Rayment & Robert Holden.

The match now stood 9–6 to Tuck Clagett's team with 4 matches still out on the course.

The next match in saw Nick's team pick up a point with a fine 3&2 win for Roger Tremain and Russell Day who by all accounts played really well with 3 Birdies on the back 9, so it was now 9-7 with first to 10 to win the coveted trophy with 3 matches still on the course.

The decider came in the next game with the 2&1 win for Malcolm Knight and Kevin Parker for Tuck's team. Even though the overall match was decided the final two games both went to the last putts. So the final score was the General Manager's Team 10 ½ the Professional's Team 8 ½.

SCREECH WINS CHRISTMAS VICTORIA AT TREVOSE:

Any one of the leading players could have won the Christmas round of the Victoria Cup at Trevose but their reluctance allowed visitor Jack Screech to slip through and take the day's top prize with 37 Stableford points.

Sean Curtis finished second from M Scott with Chris Colwill in fourth place on countback, after all three players finished on 36 points.

Screech dropped two strokes on the first hole but played the next eight holes in two under par to reach the turn with 20 points.

At this stage, he was level with Curtis but one behind Scott and two behind Colwill, who, like Screech, had also played the first nine holes in 36 strokes.

On the back nine, Curtis had no-scores on the tenth and 16th to add 16 points for a total of 36.

Scott had no-scores on the 14th and 18th and also finished with 36 points whilst Colwill had moved into a winning position until his no-score on the 15th.

Colwill settled to add four points on the next two holes but the wheels came off at the final hole, where again he had a no-score to finish just one behind the winner.

ST ENODOC'S BOXING DAY FOURSOMES:

Tradition at St Enodoc has it that there is a 12 hole Foursomes competition on Boxing Day where each player enters by bringing a wrapped present as a prize which is placed on the prize table and the winners get first pick.

Choosing a prize can be hazardous but if you want a bottle they are not too hard to recognise!

The event has increased in popularity in recent years and a bumper 19 teams entered in what were really very passable weather conditions. It was all a very close run thing with first and second only being decided on a last three holes count back. They were: 1 Martin & David Biddle 24pts, 2 John Pease & Jayne Brenton 24 pts.
