We started 2020 with a considerably strengthened squad of players but unfortunately due to the cancellation of all County matches none of the new recruits were able to make their debuts. One friendly match was played against the North Durham League which we lost 9 – 3.
The Northern Counties did manage to host their Seniors Championship at Fulford which resulted in a magnificent win for John Kirkpatrick from Ramside who shot 73 – 69 to win by one from former British Champion ,Trevor Foster, of Lancashire.
In the Durham Seniors Championship defending champion Nigel King , South Shields and rookie Stuart Brown, Castle Eden tied with 72. The playoff went to the 5th hole before Stuart came out victorious for his first Senior win.
