Hosts Crow Nest Park blitzed the opposition in yesterday’s Halifax, Huddersfield Union Nine Hole Clubs’ Championship.

They stepped up on last year’s runners-up finish behind Hanging Heaton with victory by a 14-shot margin.

Hebden Bridge were runners-up on 239, boosted by the best round of the day from Iain Powell, who shot a gross 73 playing off one.

Six-hole Rastrick club Castlefields took third on 240 with excellent rounds from Charles Burton (73) and John West (74) but their other player, Lyndon Barraclough, struggled with a 93.
