No match for Kim

Hexham’s Kim Steward picked up the Northumberland County Seniors Matchplay title with victory over Northumberland’s Jimmy Johnson at City of Newcastle at the first playoff hole.

The event, which brought together the top eight finishes from the Strokeplay Championship earlier this season, saw Kim beat Alnmouth’s David Archibald at the 20th hole in the semi-final as Jimmy booked his place in the final with a 3&2 win over Morpeth’s Michael Brown.
