Beaten Yorkshire stay top in chase for third successive Northern Counties title – Yorkshire Post

Northumberland could have overhauled them at the weekend, but fell 9.5-8.5 to Durham at Westerhope.

The latter pair won in the anchor match in the foursomes, a point added to by victory for Whiteoak and Hutchinson in match two, while in the fourth match Nathan Fell (Lindrick) and Firth returned a half.

Darryl Berry’s side trailed by just a point after the morning foursomes at Formby.

Cheshire are second after defeating Cumbria 13.5-4.5 at Workington.

YORKSHIRE remain on course for a third consecutive Northern Counties League title win in spite of an emphatic 13-5 defeat to Lancashire on Saturday.

But the afternoon singles went overwhelmingly the way of the hosts with only two Yorkshire players – Moortown’s Ben Firth and Hallowes’ Sam Bairstow – emerging with wins.
