Trophy success for Helsby

A TEAM of 14 golfers from Helsby won the prestigious Manchester District Golf Alliance City Glass Men’s Foursomes competition when they beat Sale 4 1/2 to 2 1/2 in a tense final at Blackburn.

The win all hinged on a crucial match, which was won on the second extra hole by Jamie Hodgkinson and Chris Stott.

The Helsby pair made a crucial par four on the difficult second hole to win the match and take the winning fourth point.

Helsby had won six rounds in the competition starting in April with more than 100 teams from the Alliance entering.

Team captain Brian Stott said: “I am so proud of the team, the camaraderie and support for each other. We hope the team has helped put Helsby on the golfing map.”

As champions, Helsby will host the 2016 final.
