There is only one match remaining, and Clacton needed a win to for a play-off.
This is when Starling won his match on the 18th green, meaning each team had 7 1/2 points.
Blanche-Price, who is a play-off man himself, did a really good job under real pressure. Unfortunately, it was not to be.
In the end, Clacton lost the match by the narrowest of margins.
Clacton’s men played for the Victory Cup. Jeffrey was hailed the winner with a score of 79, minus his 10 handicap, giving a net score of 69.
Coming in second was Kevin Turnbull with the record 82-12-70. On countback from third-placed Andy Hobbs with 74-4-70.
