ANDREW Trickett carried on with his run of good form on Sunday at a scorching-hot Towneley Golf Club.

His score of 155, played over 36 holes, earned him his second major win in a few weeks to secure the prestigious club championship.

Steve Wynne carded 156 to take the runners-up spot, with Nick Rae’s 157 earning him third place.

The top eight players now play for the scratch matchplay trophy.

The previous day, new member Gary Byrne won his first major at the club by capturing the President’s Club with a total of 41 points.

The in-form Ged McCabe was runner-up on the card, with Darren Snook third with 39 points.

Nearest the pin awards went to Wilf Latham at the sixth hole, and Darren Whitaker at the 17th.

Mick Southern and Faz Mahmood had exceptional cards to win the midweek stableford competitions.
