Trevose on Saturday 25th March 2017
Cornwall victorious for the second year running!
The 33rd anniversary of this annual match was played on a beautiful spring day at Trevose. However a cold North East wind made conditions testing for the players. 8 singles are played in the morning followed by 4 fourball better-ball matches in the afternoon. Cornwall fielded a young team this year which included 6 juniors and proved very successful. Cornwall won 7 of the morning singles and halved one leading 7 1/2 /1/2 at lunch. They continued their good form in the afternoon claiming all the fourballs which resulted in a resounding 11 1/2/ 1/2 win for Cornwall. Over the history of the event this is the 8th home win and heralds a good start and spring board for the County season ahead.
