Doreen Banks*

Doreen Banks was a former PE teacher and represented England three times at hockey. 

She had been a member of Oxley Park for over 50 years and was elected as Ladies Captain in the year 1973.  In 2013, the Club’s Centenary year, she was elected as Ladies Captain once again.

Doreen had also been Staffordshire County Secretary and  County Captain in 1993/94 when Staffordshire Ladies won the English County Championships.  She regarded this as one of her greatest achievements. 

She had been President of the Staffordshire County Ladies and Staffordshire Veteran Ladies Golf Association and for many years was Staffordshire’s representative of the Midland Vets.  She was an honorary member Oxley Park Golf Club, County Ladies, County Vets and Midland Vets.

Doreen played regular golf into her late eighties and had her first hole in one at Oxley Park the age of 85 .

She was well known for both her after dinner speeches and the big bag of sweeties which she handed round to players and supporters at Midland and County events. 

Doreen kindly donated a salver which will be presented to the lady aged 70+ who has the lowest gross score at the Vets Championship from 2015 onwards.


Nellie Wood Trophy

Mrs Nellie Wood was a member of Trentham Park Golf Club and was Lady Captain in 1930. She played a very active part in the County during the 1920s and 30s winning the Staffordshire and Williamson Cups.

In 1928 the County Championship was held at Trentham Park and Nellie Wood was part of the winning team. During the war the Ladies Club ceased until September 1945 when Mrs Wood, together with four other ladies, reinvigorated the section. Her participation continued after the 2nd World War when she held the position of County Representative for many years.

The first engraving on the Nellie M Wood Trophy was in 1957 so we assume that she donated the cup in that year.

The Nellie Wood Trophy is played for every year. It is an Individual Stableford, played off handicap. Those participants over 65 years of age may, for a small additional fee, enter the Vintage Salver which is run in conjunction with the main competition.
