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

in the afternoon. However the win by Newton Green's pairing of Watts and Oakey on the 16th,
