The England international from Formby posted 66 and 67, five-under-par in total, which featured five birdies in each round.

He was three shots ahead of Lancashire team-mate Michael Hunt as another county player, Manchester’s Joe Brice, finished third five off the pace.

It was Kinnear’s third victory in the merit following his success in the Henriques Trophy at Hesketh and Formby Hare in May.

Meanwhile, the action moves to Pleasington tomorrow for the second part of the Lancashire Scratch Challenge Trophy which qualifies for world ranking points.

And Hunt will be fancying his chances over his home course where he won the East Lancashire GA Harold Ryden Championship last month.

SCORES: 133 Paul Kinnear (Formby) 66 67; 136 Michael Hunt (Pleasington) 69 67; 138 Joe Brice (Manchester) 68 70; 139 Mark Ashworth (Clitheroe) 70 69; 140 Tony Holt (Wilpshire) 71 69; 141 Ken Hudson (Hart Common) 72 69; 143 James Holt (Wilpshire) 72 71, Adam Wills (Portal) 71 72, Curtis Clarkin (Nelson) 67 76; 144 Mick Barton (Wilpshire) 68 75; 145 Joey Lamb (Wilpshire) 76 71, Carl Parker (Nelson) 71 74.
