Trio of players earn county colours

County colours were awarded to players from Northumberland and Durham in the latest round of Northern Counties League matches.

Cameron Thoburn and Harrison Sewell received their colours following Northumberland’s 14-4 win over Cumbria at City of Newcastle Golf Club.

Meanwhile, Wayne Melles received his colours after Durham’s 11.5-6.5 defeat by Yorkshire at Eaglescliffe.

Wins in both the foursomes and the singles for Harrison and Cameron saw them play their part in Northumberland’s crushing victory with a 5-1 result in the foursomes and a 9-3 singles score.

Wayne reached the six-point total needed to earn his colours with a half in the foursomes and a 4&2 singles win over Lewis Hollingsworth at Eaglescliffe. His half point with Grant Dixon was Durham’s only success in the foursomes before Durham battled back to share the singles 6-6.

In the third match of the second round of fixtures, Cheshire beat Lancashire 10-8 at Bromborough.
