PORTRUSH schoolgirl Ella Proctor is the latest name to roll off the Portrush golf production line.

A pupil at Mill Strand Primary School, ten-year-old Ella flies to Spain this week to compete in the Junior European Open after successfully coming through qualifying earlier this year.

It's the latest success for Ella, daughter of Adrian and Andrea Proctor, who won last year's NI Open Junior title at Galgorm Golf Club and who has also competed in the Wee Wonders qualifiers at Ballycastle.

Ella will be accompanied by her parents for this week's tournament which will be broadcast on Sky, with all golf fees and accommodation paid for.
