THE Millennium meeting of the Suffolk Winter Alliance at Rookery Park was played in a chill wind, an occasional shower and spells of sunshine.

The better ball team event was settled on a count-back that went to the very last hole. Nick Denny of Fynn Valley and Paul Boswell of Waldringfield picked up three points on the 18th while Gary Borthwick and Steve Murphy of Stoke by Nayland managed only two.

It was a difficult day for scoring with only three pairs reaching 40 points. Mike Noble and Mark Etheridge of Waldringfield took the third prize.
