NGL Knockout Events

Kettering’s Seniors team booked a final meeting with Northampton in early October after defeating Oundle 3½-1½ in their last four match. Northampton confirmed their place with a 5-0 whitewash of Brampton Heath.
Daventry have interest in two County KO finals after James Berry and Sam Overton booked a Men’s Foursomes match with Neil Abery and Bob Ross (Collingtree), while Daniel Haynes set up a Men’s Singles clash with Nick White (Kettering).
The Men’s Betterball semi-final sees Matt Hogg and Martin McGowan (Brampton Heath) take on Anton Clarke and Kevin Purkis (Kingsthorpe), while Jim Campbell and Dave Draper (Kettering) face Jonathan Lancastle-Smith and Peter Walker (Overstone).
NGL Men’s Strokeplay champion Lewis White (Northampton) remains on course for a 2019 County double after reaching the Matchplay semi-finals, where he will take on James Northern (Kettering). The other last four tie is yet to be confirmed.
There will be no double in the Boys Championships this year after Mark Stockdale (Overstone) knocked out Strokeplay champion Joseph Hyde in the quarter-finals. Ben Lavender (Northampton) is currently the only other boy through to the last four.
A match-up between the 2019 County Ladies and County Girls champions still remains a possibility however after Ashleigh Critchley (Kettering) and Baylie Pyke (Overstone) progressed through to respective semi-finals against Emily Horsted (Peterborough Milton) and Jade Potter (Northampton).
Pyke, meanwhile, finished runner-up in the Midlands South Junior Championships as she missed out by just a single shot after posting gross scores of 76 and 71 at Gaudet Luce GC.
