BRADLEY PARK ‘young gun’ Ben Kaye retained his club’s Harrison Cup when the 15-year-old son of Halifax, Huddersfield Union president Richard, posted a nett 136 in the 36-hole tournament.

The Harrison Cup (donated by the club’s builders in 1985) is one of the major trophies in Bradley Park’s calendar and Kaye, who was playing off a handicap of 10, carded gross rounds of 75 and 81 to win by two strokes and keep his hold on the cup which he won last year when just 14 years old.

Last weekend Kaye, who is now down to seven, finished 10th in the Halifax, Huddersfield Union’s Junior Strokeplay Championship over at Saddleworth.

And that gave him a qualifying place in the Matchplay stages, where he was just edged out by Union team member Ben Hardcastle during the week, when he was beaten on the 18th by the top-rated West End player.
