Have your say

RISING star Clara Young, pictured left, has warmed up for next week’s Scottish Women’s Championship at Longniddry by regaining the East Lothian title.

Her latest victory in the event came at Luffness New, where the North Berwick teenager beat Musselburgh’s Jane Herd, right, 7 and 6 in the final.

Both players had won by the same margin against Gullane players in the semi-finals – Young beating Sue Penman and Herd ending the run of Mary-Lou Watkins.

The qualifying for the event was the first official women’s stroke-play medal competition at Luffness New, which is now affiliated to the SLGA.
