15 Juniors travelled to Trent Lock on Monday 19 August to take part in the Festival of Golf.   The handicap team of Lizzie Rooney, Jess Warren, Seren Ramsey, Harriet Crump and Jess Roberts took on a very strong Lincolnshire team to decide who would take home the Handicap League title.  The team put up a great fight but couldn’t quite keep Lincolnshire at Bay, well done to Jess Roberts in her first MNR league match returning a win for Shropshire.  Congratulations to all the girls that have represented the Junior County Handicap team this year – we finished second!!  Fantastic performances throughout the season.

Handicap League team

The Scratch team took on Staffordshire and despite their best efforts struggled with the top players from Staffs.  We lost 41/2 – 1/2.  Well done to Djalece for our half!  The team have had a great season and should all be proud of their efforts in all their matches across the MN Region.

Scratch Team:- Scarlett Duthie (Captain), Ellie Potts (Vice Captain) Djalece Van der Merwe, Xyra Van der Merwe and Katie Halliday.
9 hole competitors

Travelling to Trent Lock we also had 9 youngsters playing in the 9 hole competition, this team consisted of ‘seasoned’ veterans (8, 10 and 12 year olds!) and a couple of new beginners aged 6 and 9!  Lily Griffiths (The Shropshire), Grace and Rhian Jones (Arscott), Sophia Anderson (Shifnal) and Jasmine Greaves (Arscott) took on the challenge to retain the nine hole title from last year.  Sadly they couldn’t quite manage and Derbyshire took the tile from us this year. Overall, the girls had a fantastic golfing experience and are all looking forward to next year.  Prizes were won by Shropshire for the following events:- Handicap League – Shropshire Runners-up; Chipping Competition:  Jess Roberts, Katie Halliday; Putting Competition: Lizzie Rooney, Jasmine Greaves, Grace Jones, Djlaece Van der Merwe and Katie Halliday.

Thanks to Lesley Taylor, Kerry Roberts and Helen Pearson for all their support and work on the day to ensure that girls had a memorable experience. WELL DONE SHROPSHIRE.
