Radnor Clinch Summer League Title

'Royal' Radnor, as they are affectionately known around the county, clinched the CGU Summer Handicap League title on home ground on Saturday when they defeated challengers St Kew 4.5 - 2.5 in what was a winner take all encounter. In the last game to be completed this year both sides were in a position to win the league but for Radnor the home advantage clearly paid off.

Father and son duo Mike and Piran Kent got the home side off to a good start as both won their singles. Mike convincingly defeated St Kew's Jake Sanders 8&6 before Piran completed a 3&2 win over Andy Jones. Radnor claimed a third point when Tony Friday playing at number 5 beat Paul Hunt 6&5. Elsewhere though the matches were a much tighter affair.

St Kew kept themselves in the picture when Scott Chandler beat Jason Buckley by the odd hole and Dave Harrison beat Paul Riddle 3&2, Radnor claimed a half in the match between their proprietor Jon Barber and Nolan Oatley and with a superior game point difference from their early season matches knew they could not be overhauled. Nevertheless the final drama was to come as match 4 between Radnor's Nick Rees and St Kew's Andy Pascoe had finished all square through 18.

Playing the 19th hole Rees holed a 25 footer for a birdie 2 to win his match with Pascoe and to seal victory for Radnor.
