Hardman homes in on Acorn Trophy

IAN Hardman capitalised on home advantage by winning the Acorn Trophy at Accrington with a pair of two-over-par 72s.

And Portal’s Adam Wills moved into pole position in the Galvin Green Northern Order of Merit title, leapfrogging England international Paul Kinnear, from Formby, to lead by 35 points.

Hardman cancelled out two bogeys with as many birdies in the first round but looked to have blown his chances when he leaked four shots on the outward half in the afternoon.

But three birdies helped to atone for the errors as he finished a stroke ahead of Nelson’s Curtis Clarkin who went round in 71 and 74.

SCORES: 144 Ian Hardman (Accrington) 72 72; 145 Curtis Clarkin (Nelson) 71 74; 146 Thomas Winn (Morecambe) 78 68, Paul Wright (Accrington) 71 75; 147 Christopher Nuttall (Accrington) 75 72, Adam Wills (Portal) 74 73; 148 Carl Parker (Nelson) 78 70; 149 Shaun Field (Nelson) 78 71; 161 Andrew Bradshaw (Bramhall) 74 77; 152 Luke Ormerod (Nelson) 77 75, Joshua Henderson (Accrington) 77 75; 154 Zachary Hargreaves (Accrington) 75 79.
