THE annual Stoke by Nayland Junior Open goes from strength to strength.

It was planned to impose a limit of 120 players but there will be more than 140 in the field on March 31.

For the first time there will be an under-21 section which means that Michael Swan, off a handicap of plus two, can take part having won the junior title last year. Swan is in the English Golf Union under-21 squad but cannot expect matters all his own way.

Liam Brace is off plus one and the left-handed Owen Pearl is now scratch.

There are not many girls in the field but it could be a keen tussle between Heidi Baek of Felixstowe and Korell Holley of Stowmarket, who both played for the Suffolk county first team last year.
