CHESHIRE boosted their hopes of suc­cess in the North­ern Coun­ties League with one of their biggestever wins in the com­pe­ti­tion as they trounced Northum­ber­land by 15-3 at The Tyther­ing­ton Club who were great hosts both on and off the course.

Cheshire had opened their sea­son with an ex­cit­ing draw against Cum­bria at Carlisle and they showed their in­tent of more suc­cess win­ning the morn­ing four­somes by 4.5-1.5.

Pick­ing up the points for Cheshire were James New­ton (Prest­bury) and Do­minic Barnes (Caldy) 4/3, Lewis Ge­orge (De­lamere For­est) and Matthew Jor­dan (Royal Liver­pool) 5/3, James McCormick (Styal) and Mike Har­ring­ton (Tyther­ing­ton) one hole and Chris Har­ri­son (Sandi­way) and David Peel (Stock­port) 3/1 with Sam Prince (Northen­den) and Tom Dolan (Heswall) halv­ing their match.

Cheshire had led by a sim­i­lar mar­gin in last sea­son’s fix­ture but then let their lead slip and Chris Har­ri­son’s team were de­ter­mined that this would not be re­peated in the af­ter­noon sin­gles.

James New­ton opened with a half in a close game then Cheshire were on fire win­ning ten of the fol­low­ing 11 games with Heswall’s young star Tom Dolan hav­ing the big­gest win­ning mar­gin of 7/5.

The other win­ners were Jon Beesley (The Mere Re­sort) one hole, Do­minic Barnes 3/2, Lewis Ge­orge two holes, Chris Chilton (High Legh Park) 2/1, James McCormick 3/2, Chris Har­ri­son 3/2, David Peel also 3/2, Michael Har­ring­ton 3/1 and Sam Prince 4/3.
