Harwood plays his cards right

ANTHONY Harwood won the Wilpshire Trophy to move into the top 12 in the Galvin Green Northern Order of Merit.

But it was a close call for the Blackburn man who denied Clitheroe’s Mark Ashworth, winner in 2011, and Lancashire County player Joe Brice from Manchester.

The trio each posted three-over-par totals of 143 but Harwood got the verdict thanks to a lower second round score of 70 which contained three birdies.

Formby’s England player Paul Kinnear, who was defending his title, finished fourth, four off the pace

Brice, meanwhile, moved into fourth place in the rankings, 160 points behind county team-mate John Carroll, from Huyton & Prescot.

LEADING SCORES: 143 Anthony Harwood (Blackburn) 73 70, Mark Ashworth (Clitheroe) 71 72, Joe Brice (Manchester) 71 72; 147 Paul Kinnear (Formby) 78 69, Steve McGlynn (Preston) 76 71, James Holt (Wilpshire) 74 73; 148 Tony Flanagan (Clitheroe) 75 73, Brett Lancstreth (Wilpshire) 73 75, Josh Ashton (Southport & Ainsdale) 71 77; 149 Gary Byrne (Clitheroe) 77 72, Lewis Boyle (Pleasington) 77 72, Mark Duncalf (Formby) 75 74.
