The rising star emulated Catriona Matthew by winning the event as she beat clubmate Lesley Johnston by one hole in the final at Longniddry.

“Proud to have my name on the trophy along side some great players, including Catriona Matthew,” wrote Crawford on Twitter of her feat.

The performance came hot on the heels of the Loretto pupil also giving a good account of herself in the Girls Under-16 Open at Fulford.
