Maitland Shield results from Hazlehead

Newmachar win thriller against Portlethen

with a birdie at the 19th

Newmachar won through at the 19th against Portlethen in the tightest of matches on the opening night of the City of Aberdeen men's double foursomes at Hazlehead, sponsored by the Douglas Hotel bar and bistro, writes Colin Farquharson
Greg Ingram and Neil Melvin were the heroes for Newmachar, winning with a birdie at the first extra hole.
Earlier Ingram and Melvin had finished one down to Portlethen's Keith Horne and Sean Lawrie - nephew of Paul - which cancelled out the one-hole victory by the Newmachar first string of Jamie Wilson and Chris Simpson over Kevin Daglish (Daglish is correct) and Clark Brechin.
Craibstone produced the turn-up result by beating Auchmill by two holes - espcially after their first string of Alan Bloice and Craig Wilkinson finished four down to Les Taylor and Johnny Gregor.
But Craibstone's second string of John Borthwick and Justin Thomas wiped out the deficit and some by finishing six up on Keith Duncan and Michael Braidwood.
Northern had a good two-hole win over Deeside while Nigg Bay knocked out the team from further up the River Dee - Peterculter - by four holes.
