Stephenson’s golf team came out short at this year’s JW Lees Annual Charity Golf Day.
From previous champions to a bitter loss, this year’s team came out flat on what has been described as ‘an-off day’ by team captain, Steve Jordan.
The Major took place at Manchester Golf Club yesterday and saw talent from across the region come together in search of golf glory.
For Stephenson’s, though, it wasn’t meant to be. The Board of Directors are said to be in talks ahead of next year’s meet on the green.
In a post match interview with, Bradley Duncan, a key player in the team during the glory days, commented that this year’s team “talked a good game.”
He added, “there are no easy games in the JW Lees Major. There’s a lot of competition in the field, this year’s team will have to suck it up and take it on the chin.
“It’s a bitter pill to swallow for all of us. I’m not one to point fingers but let’s just say we’ll be pulling out all of the stops next year, we are playing for our pride.”
During the long journey home Team Captain, Steve Jordan, was said to be looking on the bright side and considering his consolation prize of 12 new golf balls – leaving him just two short after 14 were lost during the game.
