A TILE at golfing glory awaits amateur John Birchall and his Ashton PGA professional Peter Allan as they bid to reach the Lombard Trophy grand final at Gleneagles – just three weeks before Europe and America meet in the Ryder Cup.

Birchall and Allan, 54, have advanced to the regional final at Pleasington Golf Club on June 19, where they will compete against up to 70 other clubs for the chance to secure one of 16 prized spots available.
