Norway add to England's agony in quest for Euro Boys title

England last won the European Boys Team Championship in 2004 and it will be at least 2014 before they can bridge that gap after they were on the wrong end of a 5-2 against Norway in the semi-finals at Murcar Links in Scotland.

After losing both morning foursomes, England had a hill to climb and while new cap Adam Chapman secured the England's first point of the day with a 4&2 win and Jack Singh Brar (image copyright Tom Ward Photography) won his game by 2 holes, the other three singles were lost to a very confident Norwegian team. 

Coach Hugh Marr said: “We know that Norway have two or three very good players, they demonstrated that when they beat Scotland in the quarter finals.

“Realistically, Norway didn't give us anything and we maybe gave them a few things – but that's match play. We were beaten by the better team today, it's as simple as that. Hopefully we'll have a better day tomorrow

“I was surprised at the margin of some of the defeats. I know the lads are disappointed, but we'll bounce back.”

England will meet Italy tomorrow in the fight for third place.
