On Sunday Norfolk played Cleveland at Skegness in the Final of the Newton Trophy. Norfolk were unbeaten this year and hopes were high of winning as the last time the trophy had returned to the County was in 1992. On the windswept green at Skeggy it was Norfolk who were first to master the conditions going 17 shots up after five ends and after 15 maintained their lead at 86-74. But by 20 ends the game had closed up at 111 – 103, Norfolk now stepped up a gear and with six ends to play were 151 -122, now in total command they went on to a famous victory 181 – 151.
