Carlyon Bay Juniors rounded off a great season by adding another trophy to their collection when they won the Junior Maxam Cup at wet and windy Perranporth.

The format for the competition, which involved 13 clubs each with teams of six players, was medal foursomes with the best two pairs' scores to count.

Carlyon Bay's Eugenie Knight and Louis Gough shot a best of the day gross 81 to pick up the individual prize and together with their clubmates, the all-girl pairing of Emily Toy and Abi Maude (88), helped their team to an aggregate score of 169.

This left them two shots clear of runners-up Truro (171) for whom Ryan House and James Trewren recorded an 83. In third place were St Austell on 181.

In the handicap event the winners were West Cornwall (188-33=155) and the runners-up St Enodoc (189-29=160).

The pair with the best net score of the day were West Cornwall's Harry Hall playing with his cousin Sophie Gratton (87-12=75). Next best pair in this category were Falmouth's Callum Davis and Ben Browning (99-22=77).

Holders Trethorne take the next step in the defence of their CAW Cornwall Bowl crown when they face Perranporth in a second round match at The Point at Polzeath on Saturday.

Two other matches will be played on Saturday, with five more scheduled for Sunday as the 16 teams remaining in this year's competition vie for a place in the quarter-finals.

Truro's Rhys Enoch, touring pro for the Celtic Manor Resort, was due to set out on the second stage of the European Tour Qualifying School in Spain yesterday in his bid to win his full Tour card.

He will play four rounds at Las Colinas, near Alicante, this week and if he finishes in the top quarter of the field, will go through to the final stage of qualifying over six rounds at the PGA Catalunya Resort, near Girona in Spain, from November 24-29.

The Cornwall Golf Partnership has been nominated for a Cornwall Sports Award for its Sportivate Golf project that was delivered in February and March this year.

The project involved golf coaching at three secondary schools at Hayle Golf and a Disability Golf project at Launceston College.

In total more than 40 students took part in six weeks of coaching that involved every aspect of the game.
