Bradley Hall had a strong hand in Tuesday’s season-ending Halifax-Huddersfield Alliance event for the Page Trophy and Roger Heap Cup.

However, their challenge for top honours was headed off by Dewsbury, who took the top three places in the Page Trophy.

The winner was Ashley Johnson, who secured a convincing win with two sub-par rounds for a total of 137 playing off six.

Fergus Barron (141 off 3) and leading pro James Ward (144 off scratch) came next from Hall’s lunchtime leader Tim Kent, Paul Salvage and Elliot Lister.

A Bradley Hall player did at least win the 18 hole Roger Heap Trophy through Dave Mitcheson (14) with a modest nett 77 on count-back from Crosland Heath’s John Clay (12).

Halifax’s Jamie Smith (-1, 147) took the best gross prize and The Emmie H.Smith team trophy went to Bradley Hall.
