+We have had a problem putting new stories up on since early Sunday evening. Here is another of the "missing" items.


England followed up their 9-6 win over Scotland in the men’s home internationals on Friday with an emphatic 12-3 win in the Under-16 boys’ match, hosted by Prestwick St Nicholas Golf Club on Sunday.
“It was a disappointing way to end the season,” SGU junior coach Spencer Henderson told the SGU website.
The young Scots had scored a good win over North of England Under-16s the previous weekend and 12 months ago had scored their first win over England at this level.
The foursomes were tight and ended in a narrow 3-2 win for England, giving no hint of the afternoon landslide to come in the singles.
England took the one-on-one ties by a 9-1 margin.
Scotland’s only singles winner was Tom Blennerhasset (Dalmahoy), although, in fairness, it has to be said that three of the ties went to the 18th green.


Foursomes: P Shields (Kirkhill), D Law (Hazlehead) lost to T Fleetwood (Formby Hall), E Pepperell (Drayton Park) 8 and 7; D Young (Craigiehill), C Robb (Inchmarlo) bt T Berry (Wentworth), T Lewis (Mid Herts) 2 and 1; P McPhgee, I Redford (King James VI) bt M Smith (Newbury), A Carson (Long Ashton) 1 hole; C Baird (Bothwell Castle), W Russell (The Dukes) lost to J Bell (Royal Blackheath), C Lloyd (The Kendleshire) 5 and 4; A McLahlan (Bonnyton), T Blennerhassett (Dalmahoy) lost to B Downing (Truro), A Myers (Northants Co) 5 and 4 (2-3).

Singles: Shields lost to Fleetwood 2 and 1, Law lost to Pepperell 3 and 1, Redford lost to Lewis 1 hole, McLachlan lost to Smith 1 hole, Russell lost to Berry 6 and 5, Blennerhassett bt Lloyd 1 hole, Young lost to Bell 2 and 1, Robb lost to Carson 2 and 1, McPhee lost to Downing 2 and 1, Baird lost to Myers 1 hole (1-9).
