NGL Handicap League

Group A
Wellingborough maintained their 100% start to the Group A season as they grabbed two important wins at Priors Hall and then at home to Kettering.
The Priors match was always a close contest but a two-hole success from Colin Barnes and Ciaran Eeles in the final tie secured an 8-6 away victory.
Despite halving the first and last games, it proved a more straightway task for Wellingborough five days as they completed a 12-0 win against Kettering.
Ashley Connolly and Steve Coles (five holes) and Dave Wright and Tom Marshall (four holes) were the most impressive home winners.

Group B
Collingtree Park appear on course for another good season in the Handicap League after completing their third victory in three outings with a dominant 16-6 win at home to Staverton Park in Group B.
The seven-time champions triumphed thanks to wins from Michael McGuinness and Kevin Parfitt (two holes), Andrew Dennis and Joe Johnson (six holes), Craig Hartwright and Wayne Harmer (six holes) and Alistair Biggin and Clint Cooke (two holes).
Staverton Park, who have an away victory at Cold Ashby under their belts already this year, limited their points difference loss with a six-hole win from Steve Loydall and Steve Smith in the last tie.

Group C
Farthingstone’s 21-1 home success against Northampton in Group C included one of the most remarkable pairs results in recent Handicap League history as Matthew Isaacs and Carl Harrison took the final game for the hosts by 13 holes.
The team result wasn’t quite enough to lift Farthingstone above Silverstone at the top of the standings as the leaders romped to a 28-0 home success against Northants County.
Matt Bishop and Simon Orrey (seven holes), David Green and Mel Toms (two holes),
Simon Gregory and Stephen Beck (nine holes), John Hallett and Peter Sapey (four holes) and Roy Stanley and Mark Halbard (six holes) bagged the home points.

Group D
Hellidon Lakes went top of Group D with a second successive home victory as they breezed past Delapre Park with a 27-0 win.
Gary Osborne and Paul David set the tone with a six-hole success in game one, but it was Paul King and Andy McKeown, who secured the biggest victory as they were eight holes ahead of their opponents at the end of their round.
