NGL Handicap League

Brampton Heath qualified for the semi-finals but only after Wellingborough produced an almighty attempt to snatch first place from the long-time Group C leaders with a magnificent 28-3 home victory against Staverton.
Needing to win by 37 holes to secure top spot on points difference, Wellingborough made a breathtaking start as Duncan Cornish and Jonathan Gould took the opening tie by nine holes, before Dean Smith and Neil Redding added an eight-hole win in game two.
Despite a three-hole defeat in the next tie, the hosts kept going but wins by the scorelines of four, four and three holes in the remaining three games weren’t quite enough as Brampton progress through to a semi-final with Northampton.
The other last four tie sees the heavyweight clash between defending champions Collingtree Park and Hellidon Lakes, who have a superb record in this tournament in recent years.
