Our first home match of the season took place at Filey Golf Club and we were eager to get our first win under our belts against Sheffield Union.
A great morning Foursomes saw the East Riding race into a 10-2 lead with great victories from Jack Maxey and Tommy Risker (5&4), Brendan Wright and Kye Steventon (4&3), George Clark and Matt McDonnell (1up), Harry Anderson and Tom Benson (7&5) and Luke Thornton and Will Storr (2&1) put us in a strong position.
Into the afternoon and Jack Maxey and Captain Tom Duck led the line very well with 4&2 and 4&3 victories to put us in touching distance of our first win. Although we only took 1 point from the next 3 matches victories from Kye Steventon and George Clark gave us the 19 points we needed. Added victories from Harry Anderson and Will Storr coupled with halves from Tom Benson and Matt McDonnell meant that the final score was 25-11 in our favour.
In the end it was a great team performance in which everyone contributed, the team ethic is improving every game and we look forward to a strong second half of the season.
Will Storr (19 points) extends his lead in the Player of the Year competition over Tom Duck (15) and George Clark (15).
