And his cousin Sophie prevailed in the girls’ division by five shots

After rounds of 68 and 71 in fine conditions to take a two shot lead in to the final day, Joey stayed clear of the chasing pack as he claimed victory and a place in the Faldo Series Grand Final.

The young golfers faced a thorough examination of their skills on the varied Pleasington course, a new venue for the Faldo Series.

Sophie, a Clitheroe member, was on top of her game to craft a huge nine shot lead going in to the final day which provided a great cushion to hold off nearest challenger Selby’s Ellie Goodall.

Chris Handy (South Moor) couldn’t quite overhaul Joey Lamb to win overall victory but he did claim the Boys’ Under 18 division by a sizeable margin of five shots.
