THE Suffolk Winter Alliance programme ended with the rearranged event at Ufford Park where a Stoke by Nayland team of Roger Toone and Peter Jiggens won with 44 Stableford points.

They finished four ahead of runners-up Russell Palmer and Peter Houchen of Haverhill.

Tony Dobson of Stonham Barns was top professional with a level par 71 on a course well presented but with the breeze causing a few problems. Runner-up was host professional Stuart Robertson with 73.

Andrew Tokley's 74, which clinched third place, was enough to clinch his success in the professional order of merit. His main rival, Jon Markham of Stowmarket, had a no return.

The Junior Alliance meeting at Stowmarket on Thursday is open to any juniors with a club handicap. There are still places available. The event is sponsored by Golf Direct UK and Pin High who provide the prizes. Anyone interested should contact their club professional or Phil Segger, Alliance secretary, on 01473 727525.
