City Glass Foursomes Final 2021

THE Manchester and District Golf Alliance concluded a hectic eight days involving four competitions with the City Glass Mens Foursomes final at Walmersley Golf Club, the winners of the last City Glass competition.
Rochdale arrived buzzing after winning the Dunham Forest Trophy on the previous day as they took on Davenport.
But it was Davenport who took the first points as Kane and Louis McCumesky had a 3-2 win over Dan and John Stapleton.
Rochdale were quickly level with a comfortable 6/5 win for Darren Clarke and Chris Babbs over Phil Housley and Trevor Glover but Stuart and Scott Johnston restored the Davenport advantage with a 4/3 win over Matt Clarke and Nick Jackson.
Rochdale hit back with wins from Dan Matthews and Phil Whitworth by 2/1 over Andy Milne and Iain Faulkner and Scott Baxter and Jarrod Flett by 4/3 over Gareth Winstanley and Colin Burns.
In a thrilling finish Bob McGowan and Alex Carmichael again saw Davenport level at 3-3 with 3/1 win over Alex Walker and Antony Hardman.
So it was all eyes on the final match going up the 19th and Rochdale came up short right but Davenport found the water hazard.
There was a very nervous chip onto the green by Rochdale’s Martin Humphreys but in the end it was good enough to seal the victory for Rochdale to complete a very rare Alliance double in successive days.
