What is the Stovold Trophy?
Pat Stovold is a past Captain and past President of Surrey County Ladies Golf Association. Her support of the seniors, ladies and development of juniors has been crucial to the success of Surrey County Golf. As a means of encouraging talented, young golfers in Surrey to County 1st Team standard, Pat introduced the Stovold Trophy to the South Region golfing calendar in 1997. Sussex also sees the 2nd Team as the best place to introduce juniors to the team and it is expected that there will be at least 1 junior in the games. The 6 a-side matches are played against Hampshire, Kent, Middlesex and Surrey with foursomes in the morning and singles after lunch.
Congratulations to Surrey who have won the Stovold Trophy for 2018, with Sussex as runners-up. Sussex were very narrowly beaten by Surrey with the same number of points, but losing out on games won!
The fixtures for the year will have 2 home and 2 away games alternating from one year to the next, and the final match of the year is traditionally played at Cowdray Park against the 1st Team.
