HARRY Benford rolled back the years once again to break his own record for the oldest man to win the Abingdon Rotary Club Challenor Cup.

The North Oxford member last lifted the trophy in 2016 aged 90.

But now approaching his 94th birthday, he claimed the cup once again – the sixth time in total.

Benford shot a nett 69 at his home course to see off his 11 opponents to claim victory in an event which has been held annually at various Oxfordshire courses since its inception in 1950.

Meanwhile, Paul Baker had a hole in one at North Oxford’s Summer Knockout finals.
