Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS - GOLF GE­OFF GAR­NETT

THE East Cheshire Ladies Leagues have in­volved hun­dreds of games in a six-month pe­riod with the aim of reach­ing fi­nals day in the three cat­e­gories.

Host club Prest­bury had to travel to a neu­tral venue of Hale to play War­ring­ton in their fi­nal as their Plate team had qual­i­fied for the fi­nal.

Back at Prest­bury a high-qual­ity A team fi­nal went to the wire of the 19th hole with Tyther­ing­ton locked at 3-3 with Bra­mall Park.

Wins for Megan Burgess, Ca­role Ry­der and Sue Hunter for Tyther­ing­ton were matched by Park’s Donna McIn­tosh, Doreen Robin­son and Bar­bara McDow­ell. Kim Mor­timer (Tyther­ing­ton) and Liz Robin­son were level after 18 holes but Kim clinched vic­tory on the first ex­tra hole to win the trophy for the first time since 2008 and spark the team’s cel­e­bra­tions (top).

In the B team match be­tween Hale and Al­sager, Hale were al­ways in con­trol and won with plenty to spare.

War­ring­ton were the win­ners at Hale and re­turned to Prest­bury to col­lect the Plate from Cheshire cap­tain Pauline Clegg.

A sin­gles Sta­ble­ford for Prest­bury ladies had Josephine Har­ri­son first past the post with 38 points, one more than Jae Bow­ers and Jayne Har­ri­son.

Win­ter stroke­play at Daven­port had David Bam­ford lead­ing in di­vi­sion one with 66, one ahead of Craig Lloyd, Mike Rigg and Peter Beard. Top of the other two di­vi­sions were Gra­ham Boon (68) and Peter Gor­man (65).

It was close at Shrigley Hall in the monthly Sta­ble­ford with Steve Brooks need­ing a cpo on 40 points to see off Joe Cas­sidy and Daniel Hen­shaw.

The first win­ter open at Shrigley Hall saw the Wilm­slow-based team of Tony Rooney, Peter Phillips, Stu­art Kirkham and Steve Cook­son first past the post.

Also cel­e­brat­ing was Bolling­ton-based star Oliver Tay­lor with a holein-one on the tricky parthree eighth hole.

Oliver used an eight­iron to set up the 19th hole cel­e­bra­tions.
