CHESHIRE boys and girls golf teams went head-to-head on a scenic and challenging Mackenzie course at Reddish Vale Golf Club.

The depth of junior talent in the county was given a great showing.

The boys, featuring Matthew Dodd-Berry (Royal Liverpool), Daniel Myers (Reddish Vale), Ben Currie (Withington and Wilmslow), Ben Buchanan (Warrington), Lucas Kuiper (Disley), the Parkinson twins (Reddish Vale) and Jasper Hughes (Wilmslow) came out on top.

But they did not have things all their own way in a competition played in great spirit against Imogen Williamson (Delamere Forest GC), Imogen Marsland (Lymm), Siobhan Grayson (Ringway), Erin Gravett (Astbury), Macy-Mae Whyte (Wallasey), Amy Sarjantson (Ringway), Josie Cowap (Crewe) and Milly Tighe (Ringway).

Dodd-Berry posted a close 2/1 win against England under 16s star Williamson and his team followed his example.

Wins followed for Myers one-up over Marsland, Currie 6/4 over girls captain Grayson, Buchanan two-up against Gravett and Kuiper by 5/4 over Whyte.

The girls put their first score on the board with a half for Ringway junior captain Sarjantson against Cole Parkinson, whose twin brother got Cheshire back on the winning track with a 5-4 success against Cowap.

The girls achieved a deserved consolation as Tighe won the final match one up against Hughes.

Meabwhile, Harry Reid showed his enduring class in a seniors winter league stableford at Styal Golf Club, romping to victory with 36 points – three more than Neil Cowan, Nick Gillings, Chris Baillie and Steve Weaver.

Reid followed this up the next day by winning the Wednesday stableford, again with 36 and a massive five ahead of Graham Fish and Ivan Bloor.

The seniors regressive stableford had the hot trio of Graham Swann, S Beck and R Vaal cruising to 77, from M Collier, J Folds and T Nabarro 73.

It needed a card play-off on 21 to see Ray McGlain win the Styal Friday frolics from Chris Gibson, one more than Joe Cartwright.

Helen Billington was in total charge of a Styal ladies stableford, posting 37 points, five more than Helen Merren.

The 9-hole winner was Pat Millatt with 10.
