New Forest CC club champion John Heffernan was on form again following his win in the inter-club against Sotonia CC, finishing in 12th place with a sparkling 56-13.
Heffernan’s clubmate Chris Hughes was “over the moon” with a three-minute-plus improvement on his personal best to 1-00-54, while Stuart Peckham also went well with 1-02-25.
