He amassed 20pts on the way out, marginally hindered by two one-pointers, but added a further 23pts coming home.

The eagle earned him four points as did a birdie, net eagle at the 14th.

Second place went to John Lamb (handicap 13), who was edged out on countback, his par at the last for two points proving crucial in Pritchard's favour.

Lamb had four net birdies for an outward 22pts and three more for 21 on the back nine.

Sixteen-handicapper Richard Bell won overall and Division Three accolades in Saturday's Stableford at Huddersfield.

He totalled 40 and won on countback from two other players with the same score - Hamish Ogilvie (13) and Mick Darby (21).
