WEEK 3

Ashton B strike top form

 

ASHTON 'B' took top honours in this week's Oldham and District Golf League with a stunning 8-0 away win at Stamford.
Danny Andrew's side have opened up a five-point lead at the top of the 'B' East with Denton their nearest challengers.
Steve Bracken's charges were another team to win away, this time 6-2 at Werneth, while North stayed in touch with a 6-2 home win over Brookdale.
It's much tighter across in the B West though Blackley hold a game in hand after a week off for a foreign trip. Saddleworth drew level at the top thanks to a 6-2 win over Dukinfield.
In the 'Premiership' league, reigning champions Ashton are keen to hold on to their title - especially as they also made an early exit from the Cup.
They lost the unfinished Cup clash with Dukinfield 3-2 at Brookdale but bounced back to beat Stamford 6-2 and open up a  four-point lead at the top.
North are the closest challengers and picked up three in the narrowest of defeats at Brookdale.
Dukinfield 'A' had an excellent week as they followed up the cup win - where Reg Whyatt and Graeme Barrett clinched victory at the second extra hole - with an 8-0 whitewash of Saddleworth to take an early lead in the 'A' Championship.
It's the quarter finals of the 'A' and 'B' Cup next week...and captains are reminded to make contact with the neutral host club to confirm details.

Welcome to the Oldham and District Golf League (founded 1973)

The League was conceived as an opportunity for local golfers to play competitively against other golf clubs in the local area and at the same time develop camaraderie between them. The intention is to enjoy good golf courses with sporting companions in a friendly but competitive atmosphere.

The League was composed of 2 Divisions from the outset but the Cup competition was not introduced until 1980. Initially, the League was based on singles matches in the A Division and the first Secretary was A L Davidson (Saddleworth GC). In those early years, the league was less competitive and League Tables were not produced until the last match of the season had been played! In 1982, Barry Matthews (League Secretary) and Carl Cunnelly (Fixtures Secretary) ran the League on a more organised and formal basis until 2005. In 1991 the end of season Brian Atack Tournament was added to compete for individual and team trophies.

Since 2005, the trio of Saddleworth's John Walsh (chairman), Ashton's Brendan Kennedy (secretary) and Werneth's David Whaley (fixtures secretary) guided the league through an expansion into a four division format with the addition of teams from North Manchester, Blackley, Crompton & Royton and Castle Hawk. The league changed further in 2017 with the introduction of promotion and relegation between the two 'A' divisions and Howard Lawton (North Manchester) took over as League Secretary.
