The Heswall hot-shot claimed the prestigious Henriques Trophy at Hesketh earlier this month to move into second place in the Galvin Green Northern Order of Merit. And he made short work of dispatching Styal junior Jacob Oakley 5&4 in the final. He also won his semi-final match against Cheshire Boysâ€™ champion Rob Cull, from Bromborough, as Oakley beat Leasoweâ€™s Ian Hargreaves 2&1.
There were some surprises in the first round, with James Newton (Prestbury), Jon Beesley (Mere) the winner for the pastÂ two seasons, andÂ Sam Prince (Northenden) who won the Galvin Green Northern Order of Merit last sesason, all making an early exit.
Meanwhile, two new senior competitions were also played at scratch and handicap levels.
County Seniorsâ€™ champion Dave Nelson (Northenden) beat Mobi Rawthore (Sale) 2&1 to set up a final against his Northenden club colleague Tim Christie who accounted for County president Roy Smethurst (Crewe) by the same score. Nelson then prevailed 2&1 against Christie.
TheÂ Handicap trophy was won by James Holroyd (Vicars Cross) who edged home on the final green aqgainst Astburyâ€™s Max Rogers.
