Result: OAGS 4 ½ : OACC 3 ½
The annual end of season match between the OAGS and the OACC returned to Woking Golf Club on Saturday 14th October. On an unseasonably warm day, the fight for the Brennan Cup was a tale of two halves.
In the morning Tom Spencer’s OACC played some brilliant golf to lead the OAGS 3-1 at lunch – particularly impressive given many former and current Halford Hewitt players being amongst the OAGS side!
The afternoon was a different story with the OAGS making quite a fightback. With Alex Faulkner & debutant Tom Worth winning the top match, Nick North & Luca Gerolla halving match two and Finbarr O’Connor & Chris Newsam winning the 3rd match for the OAGS, the result of the overall match came down to the match between William Frewen & George Hattrell for the OAGS and Dom Spencer & Adam Smith for the OACC. Fortunately for the OAGS, William & George played beautifully to ensure that the OAGS regained the Brennan Cup for the first time since 2014.
