Warkworth team win league promotion

WARKWORTH carried the flag for the Kaims Country Park North Northumberland League in Saturday’s Northumberland Team Championships over the Hexham course.

Their three-man team did their league proud, finishing runners-up to Blyth in the Second Division, which means they win promotion to the First Division.

Ross Young carded a 74, Robert Balmbra hit 75 and club captain Gary Henderson recorded an 88 in wet and breezy conditions.

Young and Balmbra also did the club proud recently in reaching the Northumberland final of the Northumberland and Durham Inter-County Foursomes, going down to City of Newcastle.
