Under 18s Team team bounce back at Cottingham

The East Riding u18's went into their penultimate match against York just days after the disappointing loss to Leeds. Changes were made to rest key players with the upcoming 6-man team event just around the corner.  This gave valuable playing time to future members of the team. 

The morning foursomes fell the way of the East Riding by 7 points to 5 thanks to some great golf from experienced campaigners Luke Thornton, George Clark, Tom Benson and Will Storr.  A special mention to Tom and Will as they shared their vast experience with Ewan Mackenzie and debutant Alfred Anderson.

 

In the afternoon singles York, on paper, York got off to a fast start by winning the first 3 matches.  However, such was the margin of victory for the East Riding in matches 4-9 they were off the course before the first 3.  6-hole victories from Luke Thornton, Harry Rogers, Will Storr and Cooper Beck sealed the victory before Ewan Mackenzie (8&7) and Alfred Anderson (5&4) put the icing on the cake

 

In the player of the year, Captain George Clark maintains his grip on the title, but the gap has closed slightly.  Only Will Storr can catch him as Luke Thornton will be away for the East Riding final match against Teesside at Catterick
