Portlethen youngster Sam Kiloh and last year's Scottish amateur champion Chris Robb from Banchory are sharing eighth place at the end of the first round of the Al Maaden Open at Marrakech, Morocco.

They both shot four-under-par 68s - six shots behind Frenchman Alexandre Kaleka who had a brilliant round of 10-under-par 62 with an eagle, nine birdies and a bogey at the eighth in halves of 31.
Paul Lawrie Golf Centre player Kiloh, pictured, returned to form with birdies at the third, fourth, ninth, 11th and 14th, offset by a solitary bogey at the sixth in halves of 34.
Robb, who achieved a top-10 finish in last week's Samanah Open, also at Marrakech, had birdies at the fourth, eighth, ninth, 13th and 16th. He too had one bogey - at the short 15th in halves of 33-35.
Ted Innes Ker had a 70 for a share of 17th place.
David Law's 71 for joint 32nd place included birdies the first, fourth, seventh and 16th but the Aberdonian ruined his card with a double bogey 6 at the 18th.The Paul Lawrie Golf Centre player had also bogeyed the ninth.
Philip McLean is joint 62nd with a 73.
Another Paul Lawrie GC player, Ross Cameron, who had been playing well of late, bogeyed five of the first 10 holes and had to birdie the 16th and 18th to salvage a 74 and joint 74th place.
