The Seniors head into the last league games in the Anglia and Midland Leagues against Suffolk and Leicestershire top of both leagues. This is after managing a vital 7.5-7.5 draw away at rain swept Swaffham GC.
With the greens beginning to flood early on, the Seniors battled away in the morning foursomes. Kevin Diss and Terry Ryan managed a half against Oakes and Webb. Keith Moore and Bill Rusted unfortunately lost 1 down on the last to Patrick and Lyons. Graham Goodman and John Yuill never got going against Hillier and Hogg and lost 3&2. The county then began to turn the foursomes to respectability, with Steve Plumb and Richard Heyes gaining a vital win 2&1. In the final match Heron
and Campbell halved their match. So after the morning foursomes Norfolk lead 3-2. The layout of the course proved tricky for the Cambridgeshire boys however they fought hard and won the singles 5.5-4.5.
Diss lost 1 down to Oakes. Then started a run of four singles wins for Cambridgeshire. Ryan drove the ball well and was 1up though 9 holes. He won the first 4 holes on the back nine with birdies on the 10th and 11th and then closed the game out 5&4 against Webb. Next up Rusted took on Lyons and found good rhythm in his waterproofs and was one under par in the last 9 holes to seal a 6&4 victory. John Yuill, fresh from his high finish in the English seniors won by an impressive 6&5 margin. Heron then managed a vital half against Hogg before losses followed for Goodman and Heyes.
It was now down to Plumb to play steady par golf and win 2&1 against Robson and gain a 5.5-4.5 victory in the singles. The overall result was a 7.5-7.5 draw for Cambridgeshire in which easily could have been a banana skin upset for them.
