England's narrow wins over Scotland in schools internationals at Lancaster G C

England beat Scotland in both the 43rd annual schoolboys' and schoolgirls' golf international matches at Lancaster Golf Club, Lancashire this week but it was a close-run thing with very little between the two sides..
England's victory margins were: 10-8 (boys) and 5-4 (girls) and the general feeling was that, with a little bit of luck, Scotland might have drawn both mathes.
Outstanding performer for the Scotland boys was Ben Caton (St Leonards School) who won both his foursomes, partnered by Scotland captain Conor O'Toole (Stewart's Melville College), and singles ties by big margins.
