Houghton win foursomes

Houghton-le-Spring’s Sean Foster and Dan Ellison ended the season with victory in the Inter-County Foursomes.

Having come through the Durham final with victory over George Washington, they faced Northumberland winners Tynemouth – represented by Stewart Fell and Freddie McKenna – at Tynemouth. The home pair made a quick start and held a 1up lead through 12, but couldn’t hold on as the Durham pair rallied and turned the match in their favour just in time on the 18th.
