THE 74TH GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE SHOE & ALLIED TRADES 2019


Men’s Championship winner Andrew Chanter


Carden Park in Cheshire was the venue for this years Championship on June 12th, 13th and 14th, but unfortunately due to the torrential rain it was inaccessible via the main drive, being under four feet of water, so everyone had to use the hard to find “back door to the estate” until it cleared on the Thursday.


Thanks to brilliant work by Golfbreaks and the Carden Park Golf team


we only lost the Rieker Practice Competition on the Wednesday, and although both courses were still closed on Thursday we were able to play at the MacDonald Portal 12 miles away, returning to play at Carden Park on the Friday.


Despite all the changes the competition in the Championship remained as


tough as ever, with count backs needed to establish the eventual winner. The winner of the Men’s Championship, the News Bowl, with 72 points was Andrew Chanter from Lathom in Lancashire, a new name on the Trophy. Second for the United Chrometanners Cup, after a countback right down to the last three holes was Chris Gorrod, also 72 points, from Uppingham, of Rieker. In third place, only one point back, for The Chairman’s Mashie, was Kenny Stirling from Glasgow, of Bench Grade Brands.


The Ladies Championship also produced a new name on the trophy, that of


Rachel Hartley, a scratch golfer from Harrogate, and the Golf Account Manager of Ecco UK., with 58 points. The runner-up was Kate James of Euroleathers in Northamptonshire.

An additional feature this year was the Beat The Pro Competition


Sponsored by Golfbreaks, on a par 3 hole on the Thursday. Kelly Tidy from Golfbreaks, (former English and British Amateur Ladies Champion, and a member of the winning 2012 Curtess Cup) was only beaten by about 7 players with the winner being Callum Shiach.


At the Informal Banquet on the Thursday night, cheques were presented


by Chairman Ian Ferris to David Lockyer, President of Footwear Friends and Simon Yarwood, President of the LHTBI. The Auction and Prize Draw at the dinner helped raise further monies for the Charities.


In 2020 the 75th Anniversary Championship will be held at Druids Glen,


County Wicklow in Ireland, about half an hour south of Dublin, on June 24th, 25th and 26th, 2020. Full details will be circulated in December and reservations will again be through Golfbreaks.
