Despite the disappointment of losing the 9th round of the Clubs Winter League, owing to a waterlogged course, the spirits of the Club were lifted as the Frank Wills team continued their bid to defend the title they won last year when they defeated a strong Truro side by a score of 4 – 1 at West Cornwall Golf Club in the semi-final.
