Reds far too strong for Blues
The annual Man United v Man City match at Didsbury Golf Club saw the Reds in a buoyant mood after retaining the coveted trophy with a resounding win over their bitter Blue rivals.
In the absence of regular City stalwarts, Colin Hartley, Fred Finley and Roy Cheetham (trying to avoid more yellow cards) the Blues, with loans and late transfers managed to get enough players out for the keen contest.
They were well led by Tony Taylor and John Chapman with a top score of 43 points matched by Captain John Kirk and Peter Carly-Yard.
But it was eclipsed by Steve Wild and Nigel Hodson with 45 points for the Reds backed by another 45-pointer from Steve Narraway and Paul Duignan giving the United team a massive haul of 247 points- well clear of their sporting rivals.
There was a good cross section of members, men, ladies and juniors involved in an enjoyable contest with Captain John Kirk handing over the trophy to junior star Cole Self in front of the jubilant Red Devils.
