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.

John Slater

LSGC Captain – 2019/2020

John was born within the sounds of the fields of Anfield Road before moving to live near Strawberry Fields. He took the bus to school every day from Penny Lane until his teens when he moved to live across the water and instead went to school on the ferry ‘cross the Mersey (the yellow submarine was not operating then). Not sure about his future, his parents were confident that we can work it out. Because of their advice he went to study law at Liverpool University. After qualifying as a solicitor, he spent a career in business, mainly in the pharmaceuticals industry.  When too old for rugby, he took up golf joining West Hill and St. Enodoc golf clubs. His golfing career has been less of a fairway to heaven and more of a long and winding road. Working eight days a week, golf has been a luxury only for weekends until more recently when he discovered The Law Society Golf Club – a very friendly place where you’ll never walk alone !


Robert Ackroyd

LSGC Vice-Captain – 2019/2020

A Yorkshireman through-and-through. After qualifying as a Solicitor he remained with the same firm and was a partner until he was appointed to the bench in 1995, dispensing justice in various Lancashire courts until 2013 – still sits occasionally. He lives in North Yorkshire and is married to Joanne a non-golfer. He is a member at The Shipley Golf Club a course designed by Alistair Mckenzie. A member of the LSGC for over 20 years and has played in every European Legal Team Championship match since 2001, as well as in many other matches. Enjoys competitive golf especially fourballs and foursomes. Being a member of the LSGC has provided much enjoyment over the years and a wonderful social outlet.
