Seniors - Southern Foursomes

Played at Royal Cromer on Wednesday 16th July 2014

Cambridgeshire Seniors finished second to Suffolk at the Southern Counties Seniors Foursomes Q/R with Norfolk in 3rd place and Bedfordshire bringing up the rear.

In the morning Cambridgeshire beat Bedfordshire by 3 matches to 2 and in the afternoon lost by the same margin to Suffolk. Under the current format Suffolk took a stranglehold on the event by beating Norfolk 5 – 0 in the morning which meant that Cambridgeshire was required to beat Suffolk by at least 4 matches to one and for Norfolk to not lose by more than 5 – 0. Norfolk did their bit by beating Bedfordshire 4 – 1 but Cambridgeshire failed to beat Suffolk losing 3 – 2.

John Yuill (Links, Newmarket) and John Davies (Brampton Park) played very well but were the only Cambridgeshire pair to win both matches. Cambridgeshire had two debutants playing, Graham Miller (Gog Magog) and Geoff Unwin (St Neots), who both won one and lost one with their respective partners.
