King’s Lynn Golf Club march on in Cullington Cup

King's Lynn Golf Club and Mundesley took part in a closely-fought Cullington Cup quarter-final. By lunch the visitors held a one hole lead but in the afternoon Cullington veteran Justin Williams and young star Josh Rudd turned a five-hole morning defeat into an afternoon victory by one hole, and so the tide started to turn. The final result was a home win for King's Lynn by four holes.

Lynn travel to Barnham Broom on the August 12 for their semi-final.

Meanwhile, following a review by the Norfolk County Golf Union Weston Park and Thetford have been scratched from the competition for a breach of rules.

Mike Devlin, NCGU honorary secretary, explained: 'Weston were hosts to a visiting Myhill Trophy match and a Cullington Cup match.

'The Myhill Trophy match suffered a suspension of play, notified the committee of their actions and resumed when conditions permitted and completed their match.

'This is fully in accord with the Rules & Regulations governing the competition. Unfortunately, the Cullington Cup match did not communicate their actions, left the course and agreed to return a week later.

'This is outside of the R&R and as such both teams are scratched from the competition.'
