Craig shows his class at sunny VRA

AFTER a two-week washout the sunshine returned to welcome a full field, led by Alliance captain Dave ‘Sunny’ Smith (Swinton Park) to Vale Royal Abbey GC and the quality of the course and the warmth of the welcome was reflected in some great scoring.

Craig Corrigan showed his enduring class with a great double win taking top spot in the individual pro section with 42 points, one more than Ben Stanier (Wilmslow) and Phil Archer (Birchwood).

Ollie Smith (Ashton-on-Mersey) was top assistant pro with 39 points.
