BURGLARS who targeted a Winchester golf club have received a suspended jail sentence.

Stuart Forbes, 38, and Ashley Boyle, 30, originally denied stealing clubs valued at £1,340 from an unnamed club on April 24 last year.

But they both changed their plea at a hearing at Basingstoke Magistrates’ Court on January 30.

Forbes, of Blake Road, Farlington, Portsmouth, and Boyle, of Somerset Road, Southsea, were jailed for three months suspended for two years and ordered to do 100 hours community service.

The pair were each ordered to pay £670 compensation, an £80 victim surcharge and costs of £150.
