Almost a whitewash for Under 18's team against York

The East Riding u18's team headed to Scarborough North Cliff for their 5th match of the season high in confidence after victories in their last to matches against Sheffield and Bradford respectivelty.  York fielded a weaker team than in previous matches meaning the East Riding team had to guard against complacency to get the victory.

The morning foursomes could not have gone much better for the East Riding as they claimed victory in 5 of the 6 matches with Tom Benson and debutant Jack Northgraves leading the way with a resounding 9&7 victory.


Into the afternoon singles and the East Riding refused to take their foot off the gas and pushed hard to improve the 'hole difference' that could affect where we finish in the final league table.  In the end The East Riding claimed victory in all the singles matches to score an emphatic 35-1 victory.


With such a resounding win not much has changed in the Player of the Year competition. Captain Tom Duck still leads the way, but has extended his lead a further point to 4 over Will Storr and Tommy Risker.  Matt McDonnell, Tom Benson and George Clark still remain in the hunt, but have work to do.


Although the league looks out of reach for this season, the team remains in good health with 10 of of the 12 players who played today being available to play next year.
