Saffron Walden were edged out by their St Neots rivals in the last round-robin match of the Cambridgeshire Scratch League.

Brookes and Adair were one down to Loveday and Meeds at the turn, but one up by the 16th with some solid iron play and excellent putting.

However they lost the 16th and 17th holes to suffer defeat one down.

King and Fraser took on Waywood and Northfield, but despite a strong front nine and slender lead, eventually went down by a 4&2 margin.

Burlingham and Brown faced Brister and Heir in the final match and began well to lead after nine holes.

They stepped up a gear on the inward nine and ran out winners by a 5&3 scoreline, although it proved in vain in the overall outcome.

Despite the defeat, Walden will remain in the top division for 2018 and play return play-off matches against Gog Magog, Ramsey and St Neots to decide the Scratch League winners.
