HEXHAM Golf Club’s young star Matty Lamb helped England U16 to glory over Wales Boys on his international debut.
The highly rated teenager won both his individual and paired matches at the Llanwern resort to guide England to a 9-3 success.
Paired with Sussex’s Lewis George, they won their match 5&4 with a three under par score after 14 holes, before Matty went on to win his singles match 3&2.

A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
