Abbotts Ann based PGA professional Sid Trench, left, has been appointed secretary and head professional of Andover Golf Club.

“I'm absolutely delighted to have been appointed after having been associated with the club for the last year as a coach” said Sid. “The members are really friendly and the course is in great condition so we already have the main ingredients to go forward and bring more golf to the local community”.

Chris Reilly and Pete Allen are the Andover GC spring Trophy champions for 2014 after winning the final against Tom Smith and Neil Patel by 5 holes to 4. Their win was well deserved and commenting on the course Pete said: “We dovetailed very well together as a team and the excellent condition of the course made it easier to play decent golf”.
