Greetham Valley’s outstanding junior captain Ellie Haughton has been rewarded for a superb year by winning selection for the England Under 16 squad.

Ellie attended trials at the National Golf Centre at Woodhall Spa recently which involved two days of skill tests and competitive golf and afterwards was invited to attend England Under 16 training sessions.

This honour follows a fantastic 21 months during which her handicap has been reduced from 43 to seven.

While Ellie is the first Greetham member to be accepted into the squad, her younger sister Izzie is following in her footsteps and already holds the Lincolnshire Under 14 county championship at the age of 12.


Longthorpe Tennis Club members Thalia Martin and Rachael Fisher showed they were just as handy with a golf club as a tennis racket when winning Peterborough Milton knockout trophies.

Fisher partnered Bernie Bandaranaike to victory in the Sampson Trophy and then beat Bandaranaike in the Autumn Salver final.

Teenager Martin meanwhile beat Carol Dunn in the final of the Askew Trophy.

Bandaranaike won a second trophy when taking the honours in the Bronze Scratch Trophy final.
