The Colts League Final was to be held on Sunday 22nd October at Clacton on Sea Golf Club.
Everyone at the Golf Club had done their best to prepare for the bad weather that was forecast. Unfortunately, in spite of the heroic efforts of the Greenstaff and the Professional, the weather had the last word and after a night and morning of very heavy rain, the match had to be abandoned and the trophy shared.
This proved a big disappointment because both Essex and Sussex were due to field very strong sides that would have made for a fascinating contest. In fact both counties were unbeaten in their respective leagues on the way to the final.
The two Colts Managers, Alan Covey(Sussex) and David Edwards(Essex) are pictured receiving the trophy from South Eastern Group President David Parrett.
