HEYDON Grange club captain Adrian Patterson guided his team to victory over Thorpe Wood on Saturday in the first round of the Jock Stewart Memorial Trophy.
Paul Chamberlain and Mark Lewis, in the low handicap pairing, took an early lead by winning the opening hole, but found their opponents in good form, and eventually lost two and one.
However, the pairings of Malcolm Knoble-Forbes and Steve Miller along with Patterson and Bob Bridges, won emphatically, seven and five, and six and five.
Knoble-Forbes and Miller always looked comfortable and established a lead on the front nine and eased to victory.
Then Patterson and Bridges won four straight holes and on the 13th Patterson holed out from more than 20ft to secure the win.
Heydon now have another home tie against the winners of the match between Lakeside Lodge and St Neots.
