Junior Newsletter - A busy start to April!

MapperleyPaddyThe first match of the season, and first outing for Paddy the mascot, was the 2nd Team friendly against Mapperley Ladies, which was played on Thursday 11th April. This resulted in a 3-0 win for the juniors. Well done to all who played and many thanks to Mapperley GC for their hospitality and continued support of the junior section.

Amelia2The Nottinghamshire Schools championships were held at Sherwood Forest GC on Friday 12th April. It was a brilliant day with 11 entries from girls. The gross winner was Amelia Wan and the nett winner was Jorja Newbold.  Amelia, Jorja and Maddie Smith will go forward to represent Notts in the Midlands Competition. There was also  a hole in one for Lexi Williams-Green! It was a week of tumbling handicaps - the girls have worked so hard on their game over the winter.

Jorja was also the winner of the Stanedge Junior masters this week - well done! Check out all the photographs at the end of this article.
