Alliance stalwarts show their class

WARRINGTON Golf Club deservedly has great pride in its course and it was enjoyed by another full Alliance field who enjoyed good underfoot conditions and excellent fairway and green surfaces.

Craig Corrigan is a recent legend in Alliance success and he showed his enduring class as he posted an impressive 40 points to win the individual pro section by a point from Ollie Pantoja, (Ashton-on-Mersey) and Hazel Grove assistant pro Ben Thompson.

The top assistant pro was Stand’s Rob Batchelor with 36 points.

Third spot went to Chorley assistant pro Andy Palmer and his Bolton partner Keith Ashton who won a cpo on 43 points from Andrew Baguley, Phil Archer (Birchwood) and Alastair Waddell (Styal).

In the am am section the familiar names of Marcus Corfield (Swinton Park) and Dave Smith (Ellesmere) led in with 42 points from Norman Haslam (Stand) and Charlie Rodgers (Pike Fold) 41 and Leigh’s dynamic duo of Vinny Doyle and Mark Pasquille 40
