After a superb week at Silkeborg GC, the Scots were unable to cross the winning line – losing 4∫-2∫ after a tense contest.
Ewan Scott (St Andrews) and James Ross (Royal Burgess) lost the opening foursomes tie to Garrick Porteous and Neil Raymond 4&2 and minutes later Max Orrin and Nathan Kimsey wrapped up the same margin of victory against Glenbervie’s Graeme Robertson and Jack McDonald of Kilmarnock Barassie.
Two-nil down ahead of the five singles ties in the afternoon, the Scots faced an uphill task. Robertson again impressed to defeat Callum Shinkwin by a hole, while Porteous saw off McDonald 2&1, but Bradley Neil recorded his third singles win of the week in defeating Toby Tree by two holes. The final two games went to extra holes after Scott Borrowman lost a two-hole advantage against Orrin, who saw England home with victory at the 19th, Scott and Kimsey picking up a half each.
