Herald leading pack at Longhirst Hall

MEARNS Castle's Scott Herald shared the lead on one-under-par 70 after the first day of the PGA EuroPro Tour event, the Dawson & Sanderson Classic, at Longhirst Hall Golf Club, Northumberland.

But it was a bad one for other Scots in the field. Graham Rankin stumbled to an 80 while Barry Hume and Zack Saltman both shot 78.
