The Bolitho Team which one is Kenton Williams?

A marked improvement on last year when the Academy team finished a creditable 3rd. In the semi final match St Enodoc were drawn against a strong West Cornwall team. It was always going to be a close encounter but it was the St Enodoc side who progressed onto the final in the afternoon. However Carlyon Bay were triumphant for the 2nd year running in the Finals held in blustery conditions at Newquay Golf Club on Sunday 2nd September. 

7th Man James Thomas started Carlyon Bay off well with a ¾ point win over St Enodoc’s Nick Hurst, but then Sam Javis rescued a half point from Bay's George Linaker with a fine birdie on the 18th. Then a win from Enodoc's Jake Sanders and a half from Joe Combellack were putting St Enodoc in a strong position. However, the experienced county girls trio of Emily Toy, Abi Maude and Eugenie Knight from Carlyon Bay got 2 1/2 points from a maximum 3 available and swung the match the other way which ensured victory for the Carlyon Bay team.

Result:- Carlyon Bay First. James Thomas Beat Nick Hirst, George Linaker halved with Sam Jarvis, Tom Valentine lost to Jake Sanders, Jake Stone halved with Joe Combellack, Emily Toy beat Dan Pooley, Abi Maude halved with Shannon Ashcroft, Eugenie Knight beat Rhiannon Rich.
