Fixby golfers ventured north of the border to celebrate the centenary of the birth of legendary professional Johnny Fallon.
A dozen members of Huddersfield Golf Club took part in an invitation match against Lanark.
The home team prevailed, winning the friendly 4½-1½.
Johnny was born in Lanark and learnt the game at his prestigious local club, which has since been an Open qualifying venue.
After turning professional, he moved south to take up the post as Huddersfield Golf Club professional, a position he held for 47 years.
Over the years he achieved great success, finishing third in the 1939 Open Championship behind Dick Burton, the first Briton to win the Open at St Andrew’s Old Course since 1910.
In the 1955 Open he finished runner-up and two shots behind fellow Scot Peter Thomson, again at St Andrew’s.
That same year Johnny represented Great Britain and Ireland in the Ryder Cup. Perhaps his greatest honour came eight years later when he captained the 1963 Ryder Cup Team against a strong USA side led by Arnold Palmer at East Lake, Atlanta.
In this, the 15th Ryder Cup, Johnny was the first captain after the introduction of the new format, which included fourballs for the first time and saw the contest extended from two to three days.
Last weekend in Scotland, Huddersfield presented Lanark with a photograph of the Great Britain & Ireland 1955 Ryder Cup Team and Lanark provided a salver for the two clubs to compete for in the future.
The Huddersfield team was Sue Johnson (President), Andrew Ramsden (Men’s Captain), Pam Couttie (Immediate Past Ladies’ Captain), Paul Green (Men’s Captain Elect), David Balderstone (Immediate Past President), Joan Webb (Lady Captain Elect), Pat Wrightson (Director of Green), David Couttie (Director of Marketing), Charles Webb (Director of Golf), Leighton Hirst (Director of Administration and Honorary Secretary) and Alex Keighley (Club Professional).
