Cheltenham’s Aled Howell also scooped the individual honours with Bola’s Ollie Ralph finishing as runner-up.
Bishopston CC came second in the team standings but didn’t go home empty-handed after winning the yellow ball competition.
GCB chief executive Steve Silk said: “I would like to thank all of our partners, supporters and cricket clubs for supporting the event again and making it such a success. To have raised more than £4, 000 for our schools programme is absolutely fantastic and will help us continue to grow and develop the work we do inspiring children to play cricket. It is particularly nice to see the same teams and individuals coming back year after year and we hope to see them again in 2020.”

Frocester CC’s Ash Davis and Mark Burland of First Class Comms were victorious in the closest to the pin challenges. Steve Phillips (St Austell Brewery) won the straightest drive while Matt Jackson (Jelf Insurance) recorded the longest drive of the day.
Current Gloucestershire player Harry Hankins took part as well as ex-professionals David Partridge and Tim Hancock.
In addition to the golf there was a raffle and auction featuring an array of fabulous prizes donated by the Board’s partners and supporters including Gloucestershire Cricket, St Austell Brewery, World Snooker and Gray Nicolls.
