Two victories in the bag

Alnwick Golf and Croquet team won the second of their three scheduled league matches when they entertained Tyneside B at Alnwick Cricket Club last Wednesday.

Having previously defeated Belsay, an away victory at Bamburgh later this month will see them top of their group.

The margin was a resounding 14-4 but there were a lot of close results.

Matches last a maximum of 40 minutes, with the first to seven hoops winning. Lower scores indicate matches timed out when the score stands.
