Forres take Northern Counties Cup with wins over Moray 1 and 2

They were probably dancing in the streets of Forres tonight following the team's victory over favourites Moray 2 by four holes in the final of the Northern Counties Cup at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club this afternoon.
Forres had waited a long time to win this trophy, especially Robert McKerron and Bryan Fotheringham, both of whom have won most of the major North competitions over the years but never the Northern Counties.
The team really gelled together at Royal Aberdeen with the young guns out in front and the experienced "oldies" propping up the rear. All their matches were very close with their first match having to go up the 19th.
Forres accounted for both Moray teams on the final day, beating Moray 1 by two holes in the semi-finals and Moray 2 by four holes in the final.
Jeff Wright and Matty Wilson struck top form in the final, finishing 7 holes up, which more than cancelled out the three-hole defeat suffered by Fotheringham and McKerron.
