LEEDS have added the Yorkshire junior six-man team championship at Pike Hills GC to the Inter District League title won earlier this month.

Their line-up of Woolley Park’s Matty Lees, Marcus Shepherd (Moortown), Mid Yorks’ Todd Hughes, George Heath and Dan Bradbury (both Wakefield) and Howley Hall’s Tom North amassed a 903 aggregate for the 36-hole event.

It was Leeds’s second successive win in the championship.

They won by five shots from Harrogate, who in turn took second place by a further five shots from Sheffield.
