YOUNG golfers from across the county turned out at Haddington last week for the annual East Lothian Junior Golf League Championships.

An impressive field of 50 players were split into boys U18, U16, U14 and U12, while there were also five girls taking part.

The 29 U18 and U16 Boys played 36 holes over to decide the champion, with Craigielaw's Lewis Reid coming out on top.

His score of 144 edged him ahead of 15-year-old playing partners, Connor Wilson (Castlepark), who finished just one shot behind, and Cameron Gallagher of Longniddry, a further shot back.

Gallagher won the U16 scratch championships, while Gullane starlet William Ladbrooke won the U16s handicap championship.

In the 36-hole handicap event, Jordan Chatt of Gullane, won with a net 137, to leave him five-under-par.

He won by five shots from Royal Musselburgh pair Ben Bathgate and Cameron Brown.

Shannon Young (Dunbar) was crowned girls' scratch champion, repeating her success of 2014.

She beat nine-year-old grace Crawford by just two strokes to lift the trophy.

Emma Chapman (Gullane) was the leading U14 girl, while Mollaidh Nicholson (Kilspindie) had the best net score.

Councillor Tim Day, cabinet spokesperson for health and wellbeing, and Gordon Blackie, club captain, presented the prizes.

Tim Day tweeted: "Congratulations to the winners of this year's East Lothian Junior Golf competition held at Haddington GC"

Thanks were also given to officials and staff at Haddington Golf Club for hosting the event.
