NGL Handicap League

Group A
Northampton stamped their authority on their section as they completed a second away success in a row with a superb 14-2 victory at Cold Ashby.
David Goldman and Gary Slinn (two holes), David George and Dan Hayday (four holes), Craig James and Simon Hunt (five holes) and Peter Smith and Ian Tarry (three holes) grabbed the significant away wins.
Northants County, who lost to Northampton in their opening home match earlier this month, responded brilliantly with a 14-10 victory at Overstone.
Another defeat looked on the cards when the hosts led 10-1 at the half way stage, but County produced a magnificent fightback as they took the last three ties by the margin of four, one and eight holes.

Group C
Wellingborough had few problems getting their campaign off to a winning start as they completed a 17-0 home victory against Oundle.
Although the opening tie was halved, the hosts gradually took control with three solid wins, before Loz Weekes and Tom Houghton’s seven-hole success capped a great day.
Oundle responded to the defeat in the best possible way as they thrashed Daventry 29-1 a couple of days later.

Group D
Kingsthorpe made it three wins in three home matches this year as they defeated Farthingstone 10-2, before recording a 20-5 victory against Priors Hall.
Adam Willix, Mark Todkill, Peter Cawley, Danny Cramphorn and Jay Vierya were successful for Kingsthorpe in both matches.
Farthingstone and Priors Hall then met a few days later with the former coming out on top by the scoreline 21-0, thanks to a couple of huge wins late on.
