THE second staging of the Yorkshire Inter District Union mixed match at Malton & Norton on Sunday will see six teams compete for the Reprotech Studios Trophy.

York and Harrogate, who competed in the inaugural event, will be joined by East Riding. Leeds, Teesside and Sheffield in an event designed to give junior girl golfers a new platform on which to test their games.

York printing company Reprotech have continued their backing for the competition, which will have a Stableford format, with boys off the white tees, and girls off the reds with a three-shot adjustment.

York Union's outgoing president Neil Bellamy is looking forward to the event, one of the last he will attend in his position.

"Malton & Norton Golf Club kindly offered the use of their course for the day," said Bellamy.

"Whilst there will be fierce competition, I hope that it will also be a fun day for all."

The aggregate of the best scores for five girls and five boys will determine the winner among the six-player teams.

In the event of a tie, the remaining boy's and girl's scores will be added to determine the overall winner.

Last year's inaugural staging, at Bedale, ended in a thrilling 3-3 tie after Harrogate clawed their way back from 3-0 down.
