THE Manch­ester Al­liance set up the Na­tional Al­liance com­pe­ti­tion where teams from golf al­liances from across the coun­try play for the John Dowd Tro­phy a decade ago.

The first com­pe­ti­tion was played at Mar­riott Wors­ley Park who were again the hosts for the 2106 com­pe­ti­tion.

In 2015 the com­pe­ti­tion was hosted by Breight­met GC and the Manch­ester Al­liance were con­vinc­ing vic­tors.

They were de­lighted to re­tain the tro­phy as their Manch­ester 3 team posted a win­ning score of 162 points to fin­ish two points clear of East Lancs.

The top in­di­vid­ual pro prizes went to Manch­ester pros Craig Cor­ri­gan (Chilli Dip) and Jamie Howarth (Daven­port) with 67’s, Ol­lie Whiteley (Bra­mall Park) 69 and Al­liance Cap­tain Dave Smith (Swin­ton Park) 71.
