Cheshire end Lancashire’s three-year winning run

LANCASHIRE relinquished their grip on the Daily Telegraph Northern Counties League title, which they had held for three successive years, when they were beaten 10.8 by neighbours Cheshire at Wilmslow.

They went into lunch a point up from the foursomes but the hosts claimed the first three singles to take the initiative then settled the issue by winning the final three.

And to rub salt into the wound they leapfrogged the Red Rose men into second place in the table by the narrowest of margins.

Yorkshire were crowned champions after demolishing bottom side Durham 14.5 3.5 at Durham City while Cumbria won a close encounter against Northumberland 9.5-8.5 at Stocksfield.
