Ulverston's Luke Walker and Furness' Rob Spence helped Cumbria to upset the odds and defeat Cheshire in their second game of the season in the Daily Telegraph Golf League last Saturday.

It means Cumbria have now won both of their matches so far, having previously beaten Northumberland 9.5-8.5 last month.

On the immaculately-presented Carlisle Golf Course, which has previously been used as an Open Qualifier venue, Cumbria comprehensively defeated the pre-match favourites Cheshire 11-7.

Familiarity with the course rightly ensured that the home club had four representatives in the Cumbrian team.

The remainder of the team was made up of players from all around the county, from places such as Workington, Penrith, Seascale, Stony Holme, Furness and Ulverston.

The morning foursomes resulted in a 3.5 to 2.5 advantage to Cumbria, with Walker and his partner Richard Mewse clinically defeating the Cheshire top team by 6 and 5.

After an epic contest, Spence and his partner Will Bowe managed to halve their match

The afternoon singles resulted in Cumbria taking 7.5 points from the 12 matches, as they played superbly to wrap up victory.

Walker was somewhat unlucky to lose his match but Spence played some really exciting golf shots to show his talents and won his game 2 and 1.

Players wore ribbons as a mark of respect to the recent passing of Jeff Blair, a former President of Cumbria Golf Union and great champion of all the Cumbria teams .

Next up for the successful Cumbrian team is Yorkshire away, who are the overall favourite s to win the competition but confidence is high.

The match will take place at Ilkley Golf Club on Sunday, July 5 and it due to start at 9:30am.
