Under 18s Team have tough start to the season

18 months has passed since our last YIDU league fixture, so the u18's were raring to go for our first fixture again Halifax and Huddersfield at Willow Valley Golf Club. 


Fielding a strong team we got off to the best possible start with Luke Thornton & Will Storr bring home the first points with a 5&4 victory from the head of the field. More points would follow from Captain George Clark and Tommy Risker before our 3 debutants, Cooper Beck, Marcus Moore and Bobby Beasley all contributed to a 9-3 lead for the East Riding. 

Into the singles and the Halifax and Huddersfield team were in no mood to roll over as they shot out of the blocks to take 7 out of the first 10 points.  Halifax and Huddersfield were right back in the match and with the next 3 games all going down the 18th the match could swing either way.  Jacob Hodgson, Harry Anderson and Jack Northgraves experience from previous years shone through as they all claimed valuable 2 points each to put the East Riding on the cusp of victory.


Cooper Beck and Marcus Moore followed their great form in the foursome to record 3&1 and 6&4 victories to put the East Riding over the line for a 24-12 victory...a great start to the season


Thank you to John Illingworth, Peter Robertson and Chris Clarkson for their support during the day, but a special thank you to Steve Thornton for his continued support and enthusiasm for our u18's team.
