Rushton and Hart claim Galvin Green NoM titles

CHRISTOPHER Rushton made the most of home advantage to claim his first Galvin Green Northern Order of Merit title when he won the Calvert Trophy at Ashton & Lea.

Cards of 74 and 70 left him two shots ahead of 2014 Lancashire boy champion Oliver Clarke, from Hillside, who beat former professional, Portal’s Adams Wills, on countback.

Rushton atoned for a run of dropped shots early in the second round with a quartet of birdies and an eagle two at the 316-yard 13th.

SCORES: 144 Christopher Rushton (Ashton & Lea) 74 70; 146 Oliver Clarke (Hillside) 73 73, Adam Wills (Portal) 73 73; 147 Chris Bracewell (Ashton & Lea) 76 71; 149 Ian Hardman (Accrington) 77 72, Sam Berry (Bolton) 77 72; 151 Mark Marshall (Sale) 77 74; 152 Hannan Mahmood (Stand) 74 78, Josh Morton (Huddersfield) 72 80; 153 Rob Cull (Bromborough) 81 72, Lee Mayers (Fairhaven) 80 73, Luke Kelly (Ashton-under-Lyne) 76 77.

Hart beats his rivals on countback

LLOYD Hart became the fifth first-time winner of a Galvin Green Northern Order of Merit title after eight events, thwarting Portal’s Adam Wills on countback for the second time over the weekend in the Eaton Talbot.

Meanwhile, Wigan’s Reece Cranfield remains 20 points behind merit leader, England international Paul Kinnear, from Formby, with Wills lying third 15 further back.

SCORES: 145 Lloyd Hart (Heswall) 75 70, Adam Wills (Portal) 74 71, Dominic Barnes (Caldy) 74 71; 146 Sam Prince (Northenden) 78 68; 147 Nick Tomlinson (Mold) 74 73; 148 Ross Palin (Vicars Cross) 75 73, Grant Little (Sandiway) 74 74; 149 Matt Robinson (Eaton) 72 77; 151 Chris Harrison (Sandiway) 79 72, Joe Armitt (Prestbury) 77 74, James Hornsby (Heswall) 75 76; 152 Gary Spann (Stand) 73 79.
