DENTON Golf Club have claimed the Oldham and District Golf League's 'A' Cup after beating Dukinfield 'A' in the final at Saddleworth.
The match was a repeat of last year's final when Dukinfield prevailed but revenge was sweet for Denton as they won the cup for the second time in three years and the sixth time in the 40-year history of the league's cup competition.
The final score was 3.5-1.5 but the result was in doubt all the way in a dramatic final hour with two of the five games going beyond the 18th and a third halved at the last once the destiny of the trophy was confirmed.
It fell to Denton's Reece Hobson to hole the winning putt at the 20th green to seal the decisive third point.
Victorious captain Nigel Brookes praised his young side adding: "We always knew it was going to go down to the wire as Dukinfield fielded a very experienced side and so it proved. We are now keen to kick on and win the league to match the league and Cup double we managed in 2017.
Disappointed Dukinfield captain Barrie Lees will now look for his team to clinch the Championship and book a place back in the Premier Division for the 2020 season.
Denton A 3.5, Dukinfield A 1.5: (Denton first): Joe Nuttall and Zak Gregory lost to Adam Thomas and Gaz Beresford @ the 19th; Reece Hobson and Matty Heap bt John Harrop and Colin McGuiggan @ the 20th; Nigel Brookes and Jordan Windass bt Lee Merson and Gareth Kershaw 3&2; Connor Sutton and Jordan Hindley bt Barrie Lees and Darren Burgess 2&1; Matt Sayers and Andy Hunt halved with Gareth Whiston and Mark Phillips.
