 Greenock's Dorrian is Renfrewshire junior 

champion of champions at Paisley

The junior club champions of the Renfrewshire Golf Union were  in action at Paisley Golf Club where Paul Dorrian (Greenock), pictured left, beat Calum Elliot (Whitecraigs) 3 and 2 in the final.
In the first semi-final, Dorrian beat Fereneze's Lewis Breslin 2 and 1 after being all square on the 15th tee.
Lewis missed the green at the par-3 15th and could not get down in two.  Paul then birdied the 16th and a half at the next  saw him through to the final.

In the second semi final, 16-year old Jack Crawford from Mearns Castle could not compete with a series of solid pars from Calum Elliot after the turn and the Whitecraigs champion made it to the final with a 6 and 4 victory.

There was sunshine, then rain, then sleet and a hint of snow accompanied by a fierce win for the final of the Greenlaw Garage Junior Champion of Champions.   
Despite those factors, at the turn, both players were level par and all square – a great display of golf from the youngsters.  At the very tough tenth, Paul got his par four which put him one up and a soaring six iron to 15ft  at the 13th hole doubled that lead.   
Calum had a chance to pull one back at the 15th but three putts resulted in a half.  Paul closed the match off with a great up and down at the next for a 3 and 2 victory.
