THE BRADFORD Golf Union representative side stormed to their fourth win of the season in the Yorkshire Inter-District League to set up a thrilling finale next Sunday.

Chris Foster's team put East Riding to the sword with a 26-10 victory at Bracken Ghyll.

Their success left them in third place, one point off top spot with one game to go at home to Leeds on September 1.

That could be a title showdown, with their second-placed neighbours also on eight points, but both teams also need leaders Halifax-Huddersfield - a point clear at the summit - to slip up.

The table-toppers host bottom-placed York, who have only won one of their six games to date.

Regardless of the outcome, it has been a highly encouraging campaign for Bradford under Foster, who took over from Martin Gaffney this year.

Bradford got off to a flying start in the foursomes against East Riding and never looked back.

Foster himself was part of the standout morning win, combining with Andrew Busfield to triumph 7&6, while there were also victories for Rob Malloy and Tom Vertigans (one hole) and Max Berrisford and Jacob Purcell (one hole).

That left Bradford 8-4 up at the halfway stage before they streaked further ahead in the afternoon singles, winning the first four matches.

Berrisford (3&2), Malloy (one hole), Vertigans (3&2) and Ben Rhodes (3&2) kept the hosts in control and they enjoyed further momentum down the order.

Oliver Tasker (4&3), Busfield (3&2), Foster (6&4 to complete an emphatic day on a personal level for the captain) and Dane Bairstow (4&3) triumphed as Bradford claimed the singles 18-6.

Now they will prepare for their final game against Leeds at Baildon hoping to claim their first league title since 2010, which they won under Tim Wade.
