East Riding Under 18s continue to push forward!

The East Riding u18's stayed at home for their 4th match of the season versus the Harrogate Union. Hull Golf Club was the venue for what could prove a potential banana skin if the team did not perform well.

Spirits were high in the camp after a great victory last time out v Sheffield and the u18's wasted no time in continuing their good form with a dominant display in the morning foursomes. An undefeated morning session gave the East Riding and 11-1 lead

 

This would be a lead that they would not relinquish as the East Riding claimed the afternoon singles 15-9 giving them and overall margin of victory by 26 points to 10

 

Once again, the top half of the order performed extremely well, combined with useful points further down from debutant Luke Townhill and Ewan Mackenzie playing only his 2nd game.

 

This puts the East Riding in a great position to challenge for top spot in the Yorkshire Inter -District league. A match vs top of the table Leeds at Darrington on Friday will have a huge say in who claims top spot this year

 

With Luke Thornton away on Yorkshire duty the chasing pack took full advantage of his absence. Tommy Risker, George Clark, Will Storr, Jack Northgraves and Tom Benson are now all ahead of him.
