Seniors moment

Ramside Hall’s John Kirkpatrick produced a superb win in the Northern Counties Seniors Championship at Fulford Golf Club, overhauling former British Seniors champion Trevor Foster with a second round score of 69.

John, a past winner of the English Senior Men’s County Champion of Champions, shot an opening round of 73 to lie three shots adrift of Lancashire-based Trevor before posting a flawless second round 69 to win by one shot from Trevor and Cheshire’s county captain Gareth Bradley. 

There was also a good performance from Durham City’s Graeme Marchbank, who shot two rounds of 75 while Northumberland Golf Club’s David Row was the best placed Northumberland player with rounds of 76 and 79.
