Golf: Wales pipped by England at Padeswood and Buckley Golf Club

ENGLAND emerged as the victorious team from the Four Nations challenge at Padeswood and Buckley Golf Club.

The competition saw club members divided into teams representing each of the four home nations and it came to a climax on Saturday when the fourth and final round was played.

Padeswood and Buckley’s vice captain Kevin Grandfield was manager of the victorious England side, who edged out nearest rivals Wales on the day.

Out of the 15 matches played, England won seven of them and were second in another seven. They ended up with a superb score of 51 points.

Wales were next with 41, followed by Ireland and Scotland, who both fielded weakened line-ups.

The final placings after four rounds were: England (175pts), Wales (159pts), Ireland (138pts) and Scotland (110pts).

Kevin Grandfield was presented with the John Mullally Four Nations Trophy by club official Nigel Bingham.

Individual team members received trophies, sponsored by Nigel Hall, at the end of the day’s competition. It was a timely win for the England team, coming just two days before St George’s Day.

The best individual score on the day was carded by Alan Kendrick (Ireland) with 40 points.
