David Barker

LSGC Honorary Secretary

Appointed in 1982, David is the second Secretary in the Club’s history.

In private practice for most of his professional life in his late father’s Newcastle -under-Lyme firm – Cuthbert Barker, David retired from active legal practice in 2004 and in 2007 celebrated 25 years as Hon. Secretary of the Club


Tricia Gee

Nic Stones

LSGC President

Nic joined the LSGC in 1970 following his father, Jimmy, who had been one of the founder members. He has been a regular attendee at meetings and matches ever since, playing his first international match for Jersey against LSGC in 1972. He was captain in 1986/7 and during that year played in all but one of the matches, both domestic and international, including the Dutch match where Nic went on to Captain LSGC side for 20 consecutive years. Although no longer living in UK, he is still to be seen, sporting a touch of pink, at meetings and some matches. Nic became the club’s second President in 2009 in succession to another founder member, Pat Hill.

Bernard Hodgson

LSGC Captain – 2022/2023

A great supporter of the LSGC for many years, he has enjoyed the great camaraderie of the Law Society Golf Club and the opportunity it offers to compete and socialise with a whole range of like-minded people on some of the best golf courses both in the UK and abroad.  Throughout his legal career Bernard has specialised in the field of Employment law, being previously a Partner – presently a Consultant – with one of the larger commercial law firms in Newcastle upon Tyne. He combines this with the role of Employment Judge which he has held for over 20 years.  Ever the optimist, he has been a season ticket holder at St James Park since his youth and is still looking forward to the team winning its first domestic trophy in his lifetime!


Gerry Kennedy

LSGC Vice-Captain – 2022/2023

Gerry moved down south from Scotland in 1989 and has worked as an in-house lawyer since then, and is currently the UK General Counsel for Lonza, a Swiss pharmaceutical company.  A member of the LSGC for over 20 years, he has fond recollections of his very first match which was away to the Dutch; an appropriate introduction to our President Nic Stones, and to the camaraderie and competitiveness of the LSGC.  This was cemented over the years by regular attendance at the Spring and Autumn meetings.  He is a member of West Hill GC where we have played numerous matches over the years, and where he frequently encounters fellow-member and Past-Captain John Slater, as well as our Hon. Secretary David Barker.
