Harry Harrison Trophy – Rabbits Major 2017 [August 2, 2017]

“Captain John Atha hosted this year’s Harry Harrison Trophy at Low Laithes GC where 30 Rabbits battled it out to win this prestigious trophy. Conditions were tough with the greens in particular proving difficult, all of which resulted in low scoring and only 1 person actually under par. Nevertheless, we had a fantastic day with prizes for Team, winners & nearest the pins. As for the main event, in 3rd place on his debut was Chris Williams with 34 points; in 2nd place was a previous winner from many years ago, Mike Vasey with 35 points. Our winner was very well deserved as he had been in the top 3 for the previous 2 years, Jim Henderson with a fantastic score on the day of 38 points is the 2017 winnner – many congratulations. Our Vice captain, Ian Leeman looks forward to hosting next year’s renewal at Shipley Northcliffe GC in July 2018. Jim Roberts, Rabbits Competition Secretary.
