Bel retains her title

BEL Wardle showed the class that has seen her into the England junior ranks by retaining her Cheshire Girls championship at Stockport.

Wet conditions prior to the start of play then cold winds made scoring difficult and she dropped shots on the first nine holes, including a triple bogey.

But four birdies on the back nine saw the 15-year-old scratch handicapper battle back to post a gross 75 to win by four shots from Heswall╒s four handicapper Lucy Jamieson.

The same pair also took the top two spots in the U16 Scratch Trophy and after the presentation Wardle left with her mum and dad to play in a junior competition at St Andrews.

The Millennium Trophy for the top U14 Scratch Trophy was taken by Jessica Turner (Delamere Forest) by two shots from Sutton Hall╒s Bethany Hatcher.

The Handicap Trophy, which was donated by the late Cheshire legend Elizabeth Pook, saw Sutton Hall╒s Louise McLoughlin first past the post with 70 ahead of Kirsty McIntyre (Poulton Park) on 73 and Freya Johnson (Royal Liverpool) with 74.

The nine-hole winner was Molly Hughes (Dukinfield) with a massive 28 points.
