LOW LAITHES GC looked up against it when they trailed leaders Wakefield GC by eight points going into the last round of the Leeds & District Ladies' Winter Alliance.

They were anxious to make up for the previous year, when they just failed to extend a run of successive title triumphs to eight and had to settle instead for second place.

But with Lynne Campbell and Deanna Holding leading the way by winning the final meeting at Pontefract GC, Low Laithes annexed a record 11th championship victory in the competition.

Unfortunately, captain Lindsay Brook was unable to get out on the course and assist after the 12-handicapper suffered a broken arm last month.

But her squad helped the healing process by returning the Leeds & District trophy into Low Laithes' hands for at least another year.

The players who won title No 11 were Brook, Campbell, Holding, Michelle Walker, Christine Finney, Janet Palmer, Elaine Fozard, Dot Wharf, Sue Wood, Gina White, Marilyn Chapman, Jill Ware and Christine Atkinson.
