SUFFOLK 2NDS TAKE DIVISION 2 TITLE
Suffolk 2nds entertained Northamptonshire 2nds at Newton Green on Sunday 7th September in a match that would decide the Division 2 title. Both teams started the day on 6 points as did Leicester & Rutland, however Suffolk possessed the better games won record.
The morning foursomes saw honours even at 2-2 with wins for Suffolk from Rhodri Harston and Calvin Sherwood and Jack Phillips and home player Jed Seeley who was making his debut at senior County level.
The afternoon began somewhat disappointingly with Northamptonshire taking an early grip on proceedings however the young Suffolk team responded to the challenge eventually winning the first seven matches for a comfortable 9-3 victory to see them claim the title. A superb achievement for Captain Neil Meadows in his first season in charge and extremely encouraging for Suffolk Golf with Neil's teams containing many juniors throughout the season.
