Peter­bor­ough Mil­ton’s ju­niors re­tained the Cam­bridgeshire Friendly Cup af­ter a thrilling fi­nal against New­mar­ket at Saf­fron Walden Golf Club.

They took the hon­ours 2-1 af­ter clinch­ing vic­tory with the fi­nal putt on the 18th green.

Mil­ton had reached this stage with good wins over Bourn GC and Ely GC be­fore fac­ing New­mar­ket who had de­feated Gog Ma­gog Ju­niors en route to the Knock­out fi­nal

Char­lie Ar­mitage and Kai Ray­mond put the first point on the board for Mil­ton, win­ning their match 9 and 7 with im­mac­u­late golf tee to green.

Char­lie’s driv­ing com­bined with Kai’s short game proved the key to this con­vinc­ing vic­tory.

Ben Baker and Ja­cob Wil­liams just missed out in the next game, los­ing 2 and 1 to a par on the 17th.

It was nip and tuck in the de­cid­ing match be­tween New­mar­ket’s Teddy Hall and Tyler Weaver amd Mil­ton’s Michael Wood and Adam O’Brien .

Wood and O’Brien were two holes up af­ter 14 but the New­mar­ket boys sank a bird- ie putt to square the match on the 17th.

The Mil­ton pair keep their cool, how­ever, pro­duc­ing two great tee shots at the fi­nal par three 18th hole.

And af­ter New­mar­ket missed their par putt all cap­tain for the day Wood had to do was stop his knees from knock­ing and tap in. This he man­aged to the de­light of the Mil­ton team and their sup­port­ers.
