Rising star Amber Ratcliffe has won the Picken Trophy, Norfolk's award for the most outstanding junior of the year.

The 14-year-old from Royal Cromer has been honoured for her performances of last year when she won the English U16 schools' championship - helped by one round of eight-under par - and joined an England regional training squad.

She was also runner-up in the Norfolk ladies' championship and made a successful debut for the county first team.

Amber was the winner of the Brancaster Shield for topping the overall Norfolk girls' order of merit; and of the Handicap Challenge, having reduced from seven to three. She has continued in similar style this year, having reduced her handicap to two, retained the girls' title in the Norfolk schools championship and finished sixth in the Scottish Under-16 girls' Open Championship. The Picken Trophy remembers John Picken, a Sheringham captain and a great supporter of junior golf.
