After an exciting win by 1 hole over the host Team in the semi final, they faced Gullane in the final. The aggregate format, the first game being a scratch game, and the second being a handicap game, produced some great golf with Aaron and Connor being 8 holes up after 14 holes against Liam Currid and William Ladbrooke of Gullane, and Sam and Oliver being 3 holes up against Charlie Malcolm and Jack Lucas after 12 holes.
