The bi-annual Miners Lamp Challenge took place at La Manga Club in Murcia, Spain from the 23rd-26th October.
The Trethorne Team of 12 players really took it to their Spanish hosts, and having won the fourballs on day two 3.5 to 2.5, were only a single point down going into the final day singles.
Unfortunately, the Spanish team were too strong on the final day and ran out comfortable victors. So, the Miners Lamp remains in Spain until 2014, when the Spanish team will once again visit Cornwall when Trethorne will hope to win back the trophy, and maintain the trend that no home team has ever been beaten.
The pressure will certainly be on! On behalf of the Trethorne Team, we would like to thank our very generous hosts for their wonderful friendship and hospitality.
