MYTHOLMROYD’S Aaron Schnacke spurred Huddersfield GC to success in Sunday’s Halifax, Huddersfield & District Union Scratch Team Championship at Dewsbury.

Schnacke, currently on the green staff at West End, shot a two-under par 70 in his first round and although he only managed a 77 second time around his 147 total was his side’s best score.

Huddersfield totalled 607 to win the Founders Trophy by four shots from Longley Park and the host club with Todmorden fourth, Bradley Hall fifth and West End sixth in an event sponsored by John Eyre.

Longley Park held the clubhouse lead for a long spell but their hopes of an upset were dashed when Huddersfield’s last man Brad Tupman came in.

The Fixby club’s cause was helped by a hole in one for Charles Webb on the sixth first time round. Richard Broadley was their fourth player.

Todmorden’s Dave Stafford made light of windy conditions at The Pinnacle. The two handicapper shot 71 and 70 to take the best gross prize by a six shot margin from Bradley Hall’s Andy Shaw.

Halifax withdrew and are relegated along with Castlefields, Willow Valley and Outlane, who had a no return after John Lawton hurt his back.
