Aboyne's Jamie Gibb wins Paul Lawrie NE

Prolonged rain that flooded parts of the Newburgh-on-Ythan golf course forced the organisers to reduce the Paul Lawrie North-east District Under-14s boys' championship to nine holes after there was no improvement in conditions during an hour's suspension of play from 1.05pm.
The last three boys in the draw had played 10 holes when play was halted.
The scratch winner was Jamie Gibb (Aboyne) who plays off 11 and will be 13 years old next month. He shot level par 36 for the first nine holes - very good scoring in the conditions.
He won by two from Ethan Main (Murcar Links) who won the leading handicap award with a net score of 32 off six (half his handicap).
No player can win two prizes so, with Main moving over the net scores list, Fraser Laird (Alford) moved up to take second scratch place with 39. Laird also won the Under-12 scratch title.
Calum Bruce (Deeside) finished third in the scratch list with a score of 42, having a better last three-hole score than Murray Sinclair (Portlethen) who also covered the outward half in 42.
Nathan Mackie (Aboyne) finished second in the handicap section with 33 off 10, and Koby Buchan (Cruden Bay) came third with 34.5 off 10.5.
The Under-18 boys' match-play championship final between Cameron Black (Royal Aberdeen) and Brad Murray (Inverallochy) will be rearranged for a later date. Black beat Ruari Mair (Buckpool) 4 and 3 and Murray beat Liam Strath (Hazlehead) by two holes in the morning semi-finals.
