Smith homes in on Acorn Trophy

ADAM Smith cashed in on local knowledge to win the Cleveland Srixon Northern Order of Merit Acorn Trophy at his club Accrington.

Rounds of 69 and 67 left the scratch player on four-under-par, five birdies in the afternoon helping him to finish three shots ahead of the field.

That was led by Lancashire County champion and Longridge ace Mark Young who made a significant move in his quest to win a record six Order of Merit title.

And he showed why he’s such a class act by following his opening 76 with a flawless 63.

Meanwhile, sixth place was enough for Bury’s Ciaran Doherty to leapfrog county team-mate Sean Towndrow to top spot in the merit table.

 

SCORES (Par 70): 136 Adam Smith (Accrington) 69 67; 139 Mark Young (Longridge) 76 63; 140 Chris Nuttall (Accrington) 74 66; 141 Clive Robertson (Green Howarth) 71 70, Ian Hardman (Accrington) 69 72, Ciaran Doherty (Bury) 69 72; 143 Nathan Lingard (Accrington) 70 73; 135 Tom Briggs (Accrington) 76 69, Curtis Clarkin (Nelson) 75 70, Shaun Field (Nelson) 71 74; 147 Jason Kelly (Accrington) 71 76; 150 Lee Mayers (Fairhaven) 76 74.
