BUXTON teenager Josie Paterson has celebrated winning her first Welsh Open title

Paterson, the daughter of BDO ladies darts star Lorraine Farlam, beat Scotland’s Cody Hepburn 3-1 in the final of the 2012 Girls Singles competition earlier this month.

After a comfortable 3-0 win against Danni Rafferty in the opening round, Paterson was made to work hard in her quarter-final and semi-final clashes with Wales’ Gemma Bowden and Rhian Beryl Evans respectively, both times narrowly winning 3-2.

The England junior international, who also represents Yorkshire at county level, attends St Thomas More School.
