On August 28-30, Belton Park’s current Junior Club Champion Olly Mitchell (handicap 3) and Jake Craddock (handicap scratch) played in a team of seven representing the whole of Lincolnshire at the England Golf Boys National County finals. The event, at Rockcliffe Golf Club near Darlington, also featured top players from Yorkshire, Kent and Cornwall.
The Lincolnshire team had qualified earlier in the season by winning the Eastern Region Event.
On day 1, Lincolnshire beat Cornwall 6 matches to 3. The following match against Kent was halved (4½ each). This meant playing Yorkshire on the final day, in their last match for the title. Unfortunately, Lincolnshire lost 7 to 2 matches to an extremely strong Yorkshire team who were also defending champions.
