Newton Green seniors are through to the second round of the Suffolk Beaumont Trophy after a 14-hole victory over Rushmere.

The competition for senior players with 10-20 handicaps sees Newton entertaining Bury St Edmunds or West Suffolk in the next round.

The opening match against Rushmere proved decisive, with Ted Clarkson and Andrew Johnson beating their lower handicap opposition pairing by a massive nine holes.

The second match featuring Nick Smith and Frank Salt was halved, but Newton increased their margin as Steve Street and Harry Wordley won one up and Ian Duncan and Brian Joy registered a four hole win.

Scores (Newton names first): Clarkson and Johnson won nine-up against Page and Jacobs, Smith and Salt halved with Howard and Howgego.
