Continuing our look back at the Youth Internationals of the 1950s-60s

When Barnes and Macgregor made their debuts at Pannal

Brian Barnes made his youth team debut for ENGLAND in the Under-21 international against Scotland at Pannal in 1964.
And for the Scots there was a first appearance at this level by George Macgregor (Glencorse).

Scotland had beaten England 9-6 at Pollok 12 months earlier and they repeated that margin of victory at the Yorkshire venue.
Once again, the Scots dominated the foursomes, taking the morning session by a 5-0 margin.
England rallied in the afternoon to win the singles 6-4, not enough to overcome the foursomes deficit.
+Barnes (pictured), who became a successful pro golfer until rheumatoid arthritis made playing the game too painful for him, chose to represent Scotland - although he was born at Addington - when he turned pro.
