The Galloway News - - DRIVETIME EXTRA -

South of Scot­land Ju­niors took on Cum­bria Ju­niors in the North­ern Coun­ties League on April 15 at South­er­ness.

This was the first match of the sea­son for both teams.

The course was in su­perb con­di­tion as the first four­ball of the morn­ing set off un­der grey skies with a slight breeze from the east.

South had gained a slen­der lead af­ter the morn­ing four­somes with the score­line read­ing South 2½ games Cum­bria 1½.

Dur­ing lunch, the wind turned round to the south-west and strength­ened as rain clouds started to gather over the Lake Dis­trict.

In the af­ter­noon, South won the sin­gles by five games to three and the match by 7½ games to 4½.

A good re­sult for South of Scot­land in which 5 of the games went to the 18th green and all the boys made a telling con­tri­bu­tion. In­di­vid­ual scores, morn­ing four­somes
