The East Riding u18's team played their 4th match of the year at Woodhall Hills Golf Club against the Bradford Union on the hottest day of the year. Bradford fielded an inexperienced team, but nothing was taken for granted by the East Riding golfers.
The team got off to the best possible start with the top 3 foursomes matches going the way of the East Riding. Pick of the bunch were the experienced pairing of Captain Tom Duck and Hull's Charlie Milner winning 5&4, closely followed by Hornsea's Jake Sowden and Scarborough NC's Tommy Risker who ran out 4&3 victors. Bradford won the next match, but the rest of the foursome matches were claimed by the East Riding give us a 10-2 lead going into lunch.
Once again Captain Tom Duck led from the front in the singles with a 3&2 victory closely followed by Jake Sowden and Charlie Milner to put East Riding on the brink of their 2nd win of the year. Bradford took 5 points from a possible 6 to put the East Riding under a little bit of pressure. Debutantes Lloyd Bean and Harry Wescott along with Luke Thornton, Harry Anderson and Matt McDonnell saw the East Riding home with victories.
We now move into the 2nd half of the season and with 3 home matches left we look forward to a strong finish to the season.
