LONGLEY Park’s impressive run in the Yorkshire Scratch Team Championship goes on after another outstanding display at Filey in which they finished fourth and therefore won promotion to Division III.
Matt Colcombe was once again in great nick with rounds of 75 and a super 71 , while Tom Graves was just three back with 76 and 73, followed by Adam Walker 80, 74 and Adam Colcombe 75, 80 – his last round hampered by three lost balls.
That gave Longley an overall tally of 604, and takes them into a Division III clash next Wednesday at Pike Hills.
Halifax, Huddersfield Union rivals Ogden just missed out, finishing seventh, one place outside the promotion qualifiers.
