IN the West of Eng­land Cham­pi­onships at the Royal Devon GC were Prest­bury’s James New­ton who fin­ished third along with Josh McMa­hon fifth, and Tom Dolan 19th.

Finally it was the younger end who showed that there are good foun­da­tions in place as the Mixed Age (u14 and U16) team took on Shrop­shire and Here­ford­shire at a cold and wet Ea­ton GC and posted an im­pres­sive 13-5 win. Ju­nior or­gan­iser Mike Jones said: “Af­ter a slow start in the morn­ing four­somes they re­cov­ered well to post a 5-1 lead with four wins and two halves.

“They con­tin­ued their dom­i­nance in the sin­gles win­ning eight of the 12 games and in the four losses the matches went to the 18th green. There were some ex­cel­lent per­for­mances from the county’s most promis­ing u14 and u16’s in test­ing weather con­di­tions.”

The Cheshire team was: Luke Don­nelly (Ash­ton-on-Mersey), James Ash­field (Ea­ton), Sam Long (De­lamere For­est), Tom Do­ran (De­lamere For­est), Jake Hib­bert (War­ring­ton), Hy­wel Shaw (Wilm­slow), Jack McLeod (Styal), James De­whurst (Up­ton), Remy Miller (Tyther­ing­ton), Os­car Do­ran (De­lamere For­est). Liam Mann (Hazel Grove), Jack Muir (Styal).
