WALMERSLEY held on in a tight finish to the Bury and District Golf Association league to claim the 2014 title.

They went into their final match of the season away at bottom side Pike Fold knowing that any slip-up would let in second-placed Harwood.

And while the eventual runners-up kept the pressure on with a 5-3 win at Breightmet in their final game, Walmersley showed great nerve to beat Pike Fold 5.5-2.5 to win the championship crown by just 1.5 points.
