were defending champions. Although Haverhill were five down at lunchtime, they fought back
during the afternoon and after 15 holes the teams were neck and neck. Newton Green's Simon
Bearman and Mike Polley were 13 up on the day against different opponents. Haverhill’s Dave
Spittle and Jack Bligh were one down at lunch to Russell Oakey and Harvey Watts but were four up

when they were giving a shot, came at a crucial time in the overall match. Despite the valiant efforts
of the Haverhill Team, it was not enough and they lost overall by 6 holes. After the match,Team
