CLITHEROE Seniors hopes of improving their title chances in the Ribble Valley Seniors Golf League suffered a slight setback when they lost 7-5 at Leyland on Monday Singles wins for Swami Narayana and Keith Pedder and a victory for the pairing of Frank Potter and Roger Williams were the only successes for Clitheroe.

Richard Crossley and Peter Hargreaves halved their match but three defeats meant a narrow defeat for Clitheroe.

They are back in action on Wednesday when they host Fleetwood.
