This was the 10th year of the running of the Webby Trophy.
David Webb who passed away in 2009 was a member of both Woodford and Maldon Golf Clubs.
In the latter years of David's life when he was ill with cancer a friendly match to become a charity match in aid of Barts Charity was formed.
This has become an annual event where teams from both Woodford and Maldon play alternate years playing a golf match home and away, David played in the first two events whilst ill before sadly he passed away in 2009.
This year was the 10th Year the event has been played, with the monies raised some £505 going to the Barts Charity from the game played at Woodford Golf Club on the 27th August 2016.

The next event will be at Maldon Golf Club on Saturday 26th August 2017.
