Have your say

HOUGHTON-le-Spring are celebrating their first ever victory in the Northumberland and Durham Inter-County Foursomes.

Houghton overcame Seaham 3&2 in the Durham final at Tynemouth, setting up a grand final clash with Hexham, who overcame City of Newcastle 4&2 in the Northumberland showdown.

Graeme Willis and Jeff Willey were not finished, though, and they edged home 2&1 against Matty Lamb and Johnny Richardson in the overall final to clinch Houghton’s inaugural success in the prestigious competition. They have previously been runners-up.
