Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS - GOLF GE­OFF GAR­NETT

THE draw for the Manch­ester Al­liance In­ter Club Knock Outs, the big­gest of their kind in the coun­try, have been made and Tyther­ing­ton will be look­ing to win the Dun­ham For­est Trophy which fea­tures the club pro­fes­sional and six top am­a­teurs in ex­cit­ing sin­gles match­play for­mat.

In 2014, led by pro­fes­sional Nick Holmes (right), Tythy reached the fi­nals day for the first time in the club’s his­tory, only to lose 5-2 in the fi­nal to Bramhall.

Nick said: “It was a great day for the club. In the morn­ing semi-fi­nals we beat Northen­den but Bramhall proved too strong in the fi­nal, draw­ing on the ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing run­ners-up in 2013.

“There are more than 100 teams in the com­pe­ti­tion so to reach fi­nals day is a great achieve­ment.

“We have been drawn in the pre­lim­i­nary round at home against Whit­taker from Rochdale and a win there will take us through to the last 64.”

The draw fea­tur­ing other lo­cal clubs in­cludes Poul­ton Park against Mac­cles­field, while Daven­port and Styal are through to round one with byes.

In the City Glass Men’s Four­somes the pre­lim­i­nary round in­cludes: Daven­port v Heaton Moor; Alder­ley Edge v Re­gent Park; Romi­ley v Shrigley Hall. Through with byes are Mac­cles­field, Styal and Tythy.

Mac­cles­field ladies played an 11-hole Roll-up and lady cap­tain Anita Hall won Di­vi­sion One with 18 points and Jill Hig­gins was on top form, post­ing a fine 23 points to take Di­vi­sion Two.

The Thurs­day Sta­ble­ford at Shrigley Hall had Howard Row­ley in charge with 36 points from Charles Green (35) and John Wilkin­son, Steve Wells and Mary Berry (all 34).

The Win­ter League at Shrigley pro­duced a string of good scores led in by Peter Duffy with 41 points, ahead of Alan Pen­gelly and Dar­ren Whit­taker.
