There was a tight finish to the Huddersfield, Halifax Ladies Winter League meeting at Crosland Heath with an Elland pair pipped for top honours.

Jenny Priestley and Linda Gul were one of three pairs who scored 36 Stableford points and a countback was needed to separate them.

Meltham’s Doreen Dewhirst and Jan Forster emerged victors from the Elland duo with home pair Anne Robinson and Kate Morley third.

Fifty two pairs from 15 clubs took part.

Chris Hanson fared best of the local professionals in Monday’s 1836 Tour event at West Lancs GC.

Woodsome Hall’s Hanson shot a 74 on a day when scoring was high for joint eighth place out of 86 entrants. He collected £325 for his efforts.

Former Bradley Hall man Rob Booth shot 80 for joint 48th, West End’s Adam Cryer had an 82 for joint 59th and Fixby’s Adam Walker an 83 for joint 66th.

Gary Houston of De Vere Carden Park won with a 69.

Husband and wife, Ian and Sue Thomas, have taken over as Captain and Lady Captain at Halifax Golf Club for 2014.

David Weir is the Rabbit Captain and Jamie Spencer the Junior Captain.

The next Halifax-Huddersfield men’s Alliance is at Bradley Park on Tuesday.

Officials will be hoping for better luck with the weather than last week, when the Outlane event had to be abandoned at around 11.30am due to waterlogging with most players out on the course.
