The U14 Team at South Staffs on Sunday 10th September 2017
Pictured Back row (l-r) Harrison Leaver (Captain), Cassius Blake, Roger Martin (Assistant Manager), Louie Stott, Tom Lennon, Ollie Stanford, Sam Rowbottom, Front row (l-r) Hugh Adams, Harvey Jones, Dan Wakeman, Mark Hewlett & Santino Francolini.
The boys fought hard against a strong Staffordshire Team losing 4 1/2 to 1 1/2. The scoreline doesn't reflect the fact that many of the matches came to the last hole. Worcestershire have a very young side and, provided they work hard on their technical and course management skills, they have great potential for the future.
South Staffs GC is one of the top courses in Staffordshire and demands straight hitting. It was also in great condition, with greens running at 12.5, which meant putting was very tricky on some of the sloping greens. The boys coped admirably with the difficulties presented and came back strongly on the back nine in every match.
Overall, the hospitality shown to the lads at the club was first class and Worcestershire Golf Union would like to thank Staffordshire Golf Union for supporting and hosting this annual fixture.
The attitude and commitment from the Worcestershire boys was, as always, a credit to the County.
