ROY SMETHURST: Key role in UK victory

The Crewe maestro tied first with the host country’s Claus Thorson on eight-over-par 80, two birdies helping him to stay in the ascendancy at the testing course, as his country denied Switzerland by 15 shots.

Smethurst, a four-time English senior champion who has won 14 majors in his home county, was among 180 players from 20 European countries aged 70 plus.

The UK team won the title last year at East Sussex National.
