The plus one hand­i­cap­per, who has played a big part in Cheshire’s bright start to the sea­son that sees them cur­rently top the North­ern Coun­ties League, posted a sev­e­nun­der par 65 and a nett score of 66 to beat the pre­vi­ous record over a very chal­leng­ing course.

A Thurs­day Sta­ble­ford at Shrigley Hall saw Mike Gates can­ter to vic­tory with 39 points, three more than Char­lie Wood.

Ea­mon McGeady had an even more com­fort­able win in the bat­tle for Shrigley’s Midsummer Cup with his huge 43-point haul see­ing him four clear of Phil McCumesky, Brian Wil­liams and Char­lie Wood.

The Terry Evans Prize medal at Styal was won in style by Hil­ton Alexan­der with his neat 64 leav­ing him ahead of Wil­liam Dodds 65 and Rick Hol­ford and Ed­die Birchenough, both 66.

Our lo­cal hopes rest with Prest­bury, beaten fi­nal­ists in 2013, who will face the win­ners of the round two tie be­tween Ring­way and Hazel Grove.
