JUNIOR NEWS - Champion of Champions and last U16s match
David Morgan - Monday, 17 September, 2007
The morning leader was Darryn Lloyd from Lincolnshire with a 70, four shots better than anyone else on a tricky day for wind. One of three players in second place was Jamie Carney, our U16s Champion, with a 74.
Jamie ha just had the fantastic news that he is one of the Top 11 in the Daily Telegraph Junior Championships and that he will go to Dubai at the beginning of August to play in the finals!
Conditions became more difficult in the afternoon at Greetham, Lloyd shooting a level par 72 to win by nine, whilst Jamie just pipped the other two morning 74s with his 78. It was good enough for third place overall and the U16s trophy.
That was not the only third place for Warwickshire as Abbey Gittings, Warwickshire Ladies County Champion and Junior Champion, had a pair of 79s for third in the Girls.
Sam improved three shots on his morning 77, with a 74, to take second place, a round which was only marred by a double bogey at the 14th.
Over at Rugby, Dick Ferry had lost some of his top players for the final U16s match against Derbyshire. He need not have worried as the replacements did the county proud in an 11-7 win.
The morning foursomes were shared 3-3 with Warwickshire wins for Adam Ferarro & Harry Ibbertson, Tom Ibbertson & Sam Teather and Adam Moran & Ben Stokes.
In the afternoon there were eight singles wins - for Ferarro, Tom and Harry Ibbertson, Sam Teather, Ben Stokes, George Allen, Daanyal Spalding and Martin Green.
The Team, as announced by John Simpson over the weekend, to face Notts for the Midland League play-offs is
Sam Dodds (Captain)
The reserve is Richard Tidman
