Suc­cess in store for John Lewis

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

to play a few more opens around the area to see if I can keep my good form go­ing.”

Osborn was also in good form, tak­ing top spot in the 55-62 age group with 39 points. Terry Lacey grabbed the hon­ours in the 62-69 group while John Kirk­man came out on top in the 70 plus sec­tion also with 39 points.

CAM­BRIDGESHIRE county star Jody Greenall from El­ton Furze is pre­dict­ing a tight scrap when Anglian League hos­til­i­ties re­sume at Ely this week­end.

Af­ter open­ing their cam­paign with a 7-5 de­feat away to de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Lin­colnshire, Greenall and his team-mates are gear­ing up to face lo­cal ri­vals Northants on Sun­day.

And while in re­cent sea­sons Cam­bridgeshire have had the edge in the derby clash, things may not be so clear cut this time round.

Greenall said: “We did very well at Lin­colnshire and I am con­fi­dent that not many teams will push them as hard, es­pe­cially when they have their in­ter­na­tional play­ers out.

“And I am pretty sure it will be very tough when we play Northants at home on Sun­day. They have a lot of qual­ity young­sters com­ing through like Ryan Evans and Lewis White so we will have to be at our best if we want to pick up our first win.”

Cam­bridgeshire - run­ners-up in the Anglian League last sea­son - have en­joyed a far from smooth run-up to the com­pe­ti­tion, how­ever.

A player re­volt that fol­lowed the drop­ping of El­ton Furze man and top Anglian League point scorer last sea­son, Adam Pike, led to the de­par­ture of cap­tain Craig Rus­sell but the team ap­pears to have at last be­gun to set­tle down.

“Adam was told he was not play­ing which my­self and a few play­ers did not agree with and that has not helped us,” he added.

“Steve Jarvis has now taken over as skip­per but sadly Adam has other com­mit­ments now af­ter be­ing dropped so we will have to man­age with­out him for the rest of the county sea­son.”

Peter­borouigh Mil­ton’s Neil Presto will be in the Northants side at the week­end.

GREETHAM Val­ley’s top lady player, So­phie Beard­sall, is also pre­par­ing to re­sume county du­ties in the next few days.

The scratch star has been picked to play for Lin­colnshire in the Mid­land Coun­ties In­ter County Week which starts on Mon­day at Ken­wick Park Golf Club.

The Lin­colnshire ladies won the event last year to qual­ify for the na­tional fi­nals but to re­peat the feat they must over­come Stafford­shire, Le­ice­seter­shire and Rut­land, Shrop­shire, Not­ting­hamshire and Der­byshire over five days of in­tense com­pe­ti­tion.
