FOUR clergy from the Oxford Diocese successfully defended their national title at an inter-diocesan golf championship held in July.

22 Dioceses sent in teams of four, but the Oxford Diocese were able to hold off a close challenge from Peterborough and Guilford to take the title.

They managed to win last year when it was held at Frilford Heath Golf Club, but with a change of venue to Warwickshire Golf and Country Club they retained their title. First pair were Tim Perry (off 6) and Gavin Knight (off 9).

Second pair were Harrry Latham (off 10) and Bruce Gillingham (Captain) (off 12).

The silver cup will be engraved with the Oxford name and it is the first time we have retained the trophy in the history of the championship which started in 1971.

Perry and Knight are also the national pairs champions and take home the silver salvers for a year.

"Let's see if we can make it three in a row in 2014," says Bruce.
