Thetford Golf Club produced a storming finish to snatch victory at Great Yarmouth and Caister in the first round of the Myhill Trophy.

After trailing by four holes when the first pair finished their afternoon round, Ian Farnham and Andrew Horsburgh won the last two holes to halve the deficit.

Youngsters Charlie Bick and Josh Chamberlain won three of the last five holes to set up a two-hole overall win.

Thetford’s Cullington Cup team also came from behind to win at Eaton, with junior champion Dean Scott partnering John Ward to a 4up win on the day.

Ward was also victorious at the recent Jonny Douglas Salver event, with a score of plus one edging him ahead of Peter Allott, Paul Gowling and Brian Chadwick (all minus one).
