Todmorden and Hebden Bridge chase Halifax-Huddersfield Union glory at Saddleworth GC on Sunday.
They will be competing in the Scratch Team Championship and while last year’s top two Bradley Hall and Huddersfield will be more fancied, both will be confident of a bold showing.
Todmorden are without Mark Birkett but still field a strong quartet of Dave Stafford, Frank Greaves, Michael Murray and Chris Thornsby.
Bridge go into the event as Second Division champions, an event they won at Tod’s Rive Rocks course recently.
Iain and Mark Powell, George Bamford and Rob Smillie are their four players.
