Great debut for Ryan

THE Manchester Alliance Team of Four Stableford at Helsby Golf Club had a fantastic full field of 29 teams enjoying a superbly prepared and challenging course as it made its Alliance Winter season debut.

Also making his debut was Ryan O’Neill, the assistant professional at Penwortham Golf Club, who recently joined the Alliance.

Ryan was top man in the individual pro section with 38 points ahead of Andrew Terry (Whitefield) making a welcome return from injury, 37 and home club assistant pro Anthony Dempsey 35.

They beat Marcus Corfield (Swinton Park), Dave Hemingway (Chorley), Lee Warren (Northenden) and Dave Smith (Ellesmere) on a cpo with Saddleworth’s team of Andy Earlam, Neil Bamford, Dave Pullen and Dean Jagger in third spot with 82 points.

For those players of a ‘Red’ persuasion they were delighted to play in the same competition as Ryan Giggs, who was a key player in Adam Hodkinson’s fab four.
