In sweltering heat, Ruddick gradually reeled in overnight leader David Blofield in the 36-hole weekend competition at the Condover club.

Chipping in for a two on the 17th, he took a two-shot lead up the 18th, only to slice his second shot into the bunker on the right of the ninth hole.

An excellent recovery saw him finish with a bogey, while Blofield's birdie putt to tie for the lead slid narrowly wide.

Connor Cheshire was third, while Phil Eatock shot a hole in one on the eighth.

Davies carded a gross 86 and 85 on the women’s one-day 36-hole competition to finish six shots in front of second- placed Karen Thaw with a 92 and 85.

Marie O’Sullivan was third, just one shot, back carding 93 and 85.

Best nett score and winner of the Condover Cup was Abi Randall with a nett 72 and 68 with Elaine Adams in the runner-up spot with 76 and 72.

Market Drayton's Robert Aston finished second by one shot to Enville's Paul Griffiths at the Midland Golf Union's Seniors Amateur Championship at the Herefordshire Golf Club.

Llanymynech A finished winners of the Hargrove Plate after beating Ludlow home and away by a score of 2-1 on each occasion.
