EDDIE Pepperell surged into a share of the lead at the Spanish Open following an excellent first round in Girona.

The 23-year-old from Abingdon's only blemish was dropped a shot at the first, but he staged an excellent recovery.

Birdies at the fourth and sixth got him moving in the right direction, before a strong finish.

Pepperell picked up further shots at the 13th, 15th and 17th to card a four-under-par 68.

It took him top of the leaderboard, alongside Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello, who was still out on the course.
