The Lancashire Boys Under 16 team finished the season at Ellesmere Golf Club with match against Cheshire Under 16 Boys. A good morning performance saw the team take a deserved 2.5 to 1.5 lead going into the afternoon singles. But the Cheshire team won the first 5 singles matches in the afternoon. Good wins from Tom Davies and James O'Toole couldn't prevent a final score of 7.5 to 4.5 to Cheshire. Good experience for the boys and we're they'll be all the better for it next year.
