Victory for Seniors v Northumberland
The Yorkshire Senior team concluded its season with a hard fought victory on away soil against Northumberland at the very windy Bedlington Golf Club.
The disappointment of not qualifying for the English County finals was put aside as the team took a commanding morning lead of 4 ½ to 1 ½ and this was extended further when Richard Norton and Kevin Parkes won the top match of the afternoon session.
The remaining games though had Northumberland fighting back and mid way in the afternoon they led in 4 of the 5 matches out on the course and a close finish was on the cards.
However, a birdie blitz from Andy Wiltshire and Phil Kitching put Yorkshire back in the driving seat as they eased to a 4 and 3 victory and with the last game back in control the match had Yorkshire take an 11 ½ to 6 ½ victory.
The Captain commented ‘ A great way to end the season, unbeaten in the league and crowned league champions again for the 3rd consecutive season, bring on next year’
