CAGU Boys U12 and U14 meet their Northants counterparts at St. Ives golf club for the first county golf match of the season.

The weather forecast was bleak, but we managed to get away with a few light showers. The format was 9 holes greensomes followed by 9 holes singles, all the CAGU boys were giving shots across the board.

The Deputy President did the honours as starter. CAGU was led away by the team of Theo Morris and Sam Marshal who were quicky into their stride. Harry Howell and Rohan Neat where up second and two strong tee shots set the tone for the match, followed by the third pair of Joe Austin and Harry Sherriff who played great golf.

The U12’s were led away by Ellis Kerr and Jack Sherriff with both boys playing well. Second pair away were Jack Carnegie and Matthew Russel who started slowly and grew into the match, and last but no means least, the pair of Arwan Alwaya and Oliver Housden who started very well.

After the holes of greensomes CAGU were ahead 5 to 1 – a totally dominant display from the boys.

The singles matches followed the same patten with wins for Morris, Neat, Howell, Austin, and Sherriff for the U 14 group with a ½ for Marshall. A tremendous achievement given that at least 2 shots were given on the singles matches for all players.

The U12 matches were more even with wins for Carnegie, Alwala, Housden and a narrow loss for Kerr on the last due to a tremendous 45yard par putt from his Northants counterpart. Russell and Sherriff just coming up a little shy on this occasion.

Overall a great day’s golf with a lot of great golf on display which bodes well for the future.

Overall result

CAGU 13.5 – NORTHANTS 4.5
