PONTELAND Golf Club have capped a fine 2007 with Alan Shearer doing the honours at the annual presentation.

Ponteland Juniors enjoyed another very succesful year and were league champions in 2007.

Club champions were Jack Logan and Rachel Bruce while Richard Robson-Crosby was elected as Northumberland junior boys vice-captain.

Another up and coming star at the club is Ami Story, who was Ponteland ladies champion in 2007.

Following on from being both County and County Junior Champion in 2006, Ami was Ponteland's Lady Club Champion in 2007.

She also won the Northumberland Ladies County Golf Association Championship Bowl, was the leading qualifier in the Rita Rennie Salver, had the best gross score in the Lockhart Trophy and the Richmond Trophy.

The principle sponsor of the presentation was Cowell's Garden Centre & Nurseries of Woolsington, who is also the major benefactor to junior golf at Ponteland.

Contributions from Barclay's Bank and Newcastle Building Society were also a big help.
