The Penry Trophy 2023

Despite the threat of thunder & lightning, the 87th Penry Trophy took place at Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club under some very dark skies. We just about got away with it and despite a couple of extremely heavy downpours, the course absorbed the rain like and a sponge. 34 former pupils of KES / KEQMS / QMS were able to make it on the day and battle it out over the famous links course. The game is a great tradition for the school, one that has been supported by the golf club through thick and thin, and it's great to see it growing again. Without wanting to name names, there were 4 decades of former pupils being represented which is fantastic, and it was a pleasure to have Mr Hayden representing the current school as our guest, and a visit from Sarah W & Sarah S in the school’s development team to be able to meet & catch up with our alumni (please do check out if you are not already signed up).

The Penry Trophy was won by Iain Stevenson, who has played over the last few years despite living in Germany. It’s a great effort to travel over for the game, and this year he got his reward (photo below). The Runner Up was Ben Hargreaves.

The Handley Cup, for players with a handicap of 12 or less, was won by Mike Hornby, and the House Cup was won by St John’s. The Porter Trophy, for the leading former QMS pupil, was won by debutant Sally Hart, who now has no reason not to come back next year.

The Lidunians offered a nearest the pin prize on the par 3 9th hole, which was won by Michael Roe, and a longest drive on the 18th hole, which was won by Hazel Preston.
