On 42 points were Michael Allison (3) and Oliver Allison (19) with 5 birdies and a gross eagle on the 1st hole. Michael is a past professional at Halifax and has only recently joined the club as an amateur. In third place was Mark Birkett (1) partnered by Bradley Hall's Chris Lander (2) on 41 points.
Dewsbury's Nigel Hirst won his second Alliance of the season, this time with Jonathan Binns (4) with 40 points. Tied in second place were Dave Delaney and Andy Whitworth (1) of Bradley Hall and Toby Garrett and Richard Hanson (5) of Crosland Heath on 39 points.
The Ogden course has recovered well from the summers drought and was complemented by the players for its fine condition. The morning saw sunshine and blustery showers, the afternoon dry and sunny although late cloud brought the temperature down. The wind was strong all day but moderating as the day progressed.
The next Alliance is in the new year at Elland Golf Club on Tuesday 5th February.
