Moray 1's team of Stuart Tatters, Kyle Godsman, Malcolm MacLeman and Graham Murray achieved a convincing eight-hole victory over Murcar Links  in the final of the Northern Counties Cup at the Moray Golf Club links at Lossiemouth today.
Moray last won the double foursomes match-play tournament  on their home course in 2005 while Murcar Links' last triumph was at  the Lossiemouth links  in 1999 when their team was Bryan Innes, Ronnie Duncan, Alan Reith and Andrew Campbell. 
Moray’s last winning line-up was John Matheson, Ian Geddes, Gary Thomson and Kevin Thomson. This is the 106th final since the first competition in 1900.
Local knowledge played a big part in Moray's win over the past three days but, in the final, Malcom MacLeman and Stuart Tatters were four under par after 15 holes and five up. At the 450 yard 14th hole Anthony Bews of Murcar Links holed his second shot to bring their deficit back to three holes but with Moray’s first string being five up at the 15th the game was all over.
Murcar Links were represented by Adrian Styles, Bryan Innes, Anthony Bews and Ian Galbraith.
