Thrilling win for Seniors v Northumberland
The Senior Mens team opened the Northern County League season with a thrilling victory against Northumberland at the superb and beautiful golf links at Dunstanburgh Castle Golf Course by 9.5 points to 8.5 points .
The 1 point advantage was secured in the morning Greensomes when Robert Treweek (pictured above), the new Senior Champion playing his first match alongside seasoned campaigner Johnny Lawrence, secured a half point in the top match. Wins by Andy King with Mark Lawson then Gary Cuthbert with Steve Mason and new boys Richard Holt and David Sanby brought the score to 3.5 points.
Sadly Robert and Johnny lost the opening Fourball match in the afternoon but wins in the next three matches with Steve Mason stealing the glory with a 30 yard pitch and single putt on the 18th hole with his partner Gary Cuthbert ready to hole out from 8 feet after a delightful bunker shot.
The new players making their first appearances for the County, Richard Holt,David Sanby, Frank Greaves and Paul Kester prformed well but lost in the afternoon.
A great start to our campaign with the President in attendance which was much appreciated by the team.
