    Dyrham Park were toasting Glancy Trophy success for the first time after sweeping the board at the 76th annual tournament in Liverpool.

    Winners of The Metropolitan a fortnight ago, Dyrham won the 18-team competition that featured the top players from the Jewish Golf Clubs and Societies in the UK and Ireland.

    Dyrham's Leon Moss described the victory at Lee Park as "a phenomenal achievement".

    He said: "As you get older, these opportunities get fewer and fewer so it's really special when you win it.

    Leeds Golf Society, the 2012 winners, were runners-up in the gross and were rewarded with the Shirley Trophy whilst WAGOS finished second in the net competition to secure the Abridge Cup.

    An AJGCS spokesman said: "The competition is the highlight of our golfing calendar and despite the broadening of the membership of historically predominantly Jewish clubs, the enthusiasm for participating in the event has been growing in the past three years."

    Next year's Glancy Trophy will be held at Bonnyton in Glasgow.

    "It's an amazing feeling and some people are now calling us the Manchester City of Jewish golf."

    After a wet final practice day, the weather improved for the foursomes element of the competition. Although not long, the course asked many questions of the players and the best answer was provided by Marshall Newman and Ian Brill of Leeds Golf Society. Their gross score of 73 earned them the Coombe Hill trophy. Louis Levenson and Paul Freedman of WAGOS returned a net score of 67 to take home the Whitefield Cup.

    In the team competition, Dyrham Park won the aptly named Dyrham Park Trophy for the aggregate of the lowest three gross scores out of four in the foursomes.

    Sunday again saw good weather, with the threatened rain holding off until the last player had completed. Glancy Trophy stalwart Stephen Schindler of Dyrham won the Hartsbourne Cup for the lowest gross round, returning a score of 73.

    Paul Simon of Dunham Forest registered the same score but lost a card playoff, taking home Glasgow Trophy for the runner-up.

    Simon was also unlucky in the net competition as his score of 68 was matched by Jerrard Winter of North West London GS, with Winter taking the Potters Bar Bowl on a card playoff. Paul collected the Sussex Cup as runner-up.

    The main focus of the weekend is the competition for Glancy Trophy, awarded to the team returning the six lowest gross scores in the singles combined with the three lowest gross scores in the foursomes. Dyrham, on their return to the competition, were victorious for the first time and took home the prestigious trophy. A team led by Anthony Cohen, who at 47 is believed to be the club's youngest ever captain, also featured Richard Gordon, Joel Shields, Trevor Steele, Michael Charles, Josh Davis, Ricky Curtis and Leon Moss. They also claimed the Edmonstown Cup for the best net score.

    Leeds Golf Society, the 2012 winners, were runners-up in the gross and were rewarded with the Shirley Trophy whilst WAGOS finished second in the net competition to secure the Abridge Cup.

    An AJGCS spokesman said: "The competition is the highlight of our golfing calendar and despite the broadening of the membership of historically predominantly Jewish clubs, the enthusiasm for participating in the event has been growing in the past three years."
