County win No.22  for Yorkshire MEN

YORKSHIRE have been crowned the English Men’s County Champions

YORKSHIRE have been crowned the English Men’s County Champions for the 22nd time – snatching victory by the
tiny margin of half a game point at the end of three days’ intense competition at Aldeburgh Golf Club. The title showdown against Gloucestershire was a nail-biter which ended in a halved match and meant the destination of the trophy was decided by the number of game points won by the two teams. Yorkshire triumphed with 16, to Gloucestershire’s 15.5. The Northern team amassed their precious advantage on the first day when they beat Lincolnshire 6.5-2.5 and captain Darryl Berry remarked:

“I knew that half a point could matter!” They followed up with a 5-4 win over BB&O, while Gloucestershire also won both their opening matches to set-up the grand finale. Speaking afterwards, Berry said: “I’m so proud of them. People don’t understand how hard this is, it’s an endurance test as well as golf. But they have got their reward and that’s all that matters.”
