Our 2 representative Junior teams did the league proud on Sunday 16th September the A team won their group at Oxon beating the Ludlow League in the group decider and went on to the main final. Our B team with several debutants in the team did very well on what was a big step up for them , they just lost against the 2 sides that were full of county players but won their third game to finish third in their group a very worthy effort by all concerned who shoud be very proud of themselves. In the main final against the host league Tanners at Hanwood which is one of the county hardest greens the team did well against a full county team from tanners just missing out on the trophy. Overall a excellent day with some good up and coming juniors in the area.
