Golf: Jacob Williams is the latest rising star to emerge from the Peterborough Milton junior set-up.

Although aged just 10, the youngster from Market Deeping recently managed to hit his first hole-in-one at the Castor course.

The 24-handicapper was playing a round with his dad Steve and two other juniors - Jake Bowden and Michael Wood - when he recorded an ace at the par three 16th.

Proud dad Steve said: “It was a delightful shot with his pitching wedge. It bounced off the bank onto the green, hit the flag and dropped in. It was amazing.

“Although there are no official records held on file we believe Jacob is the youngest player at the club to achieve a hole-in-one.

“Jacob loves the game and one day hopes he can turn professional. His hero is Rory McIlroy.”

Jacob picked up his first club when he was five years-old and has been a member at Milton for three years.

In the club’s Junior Christmas Competition he finished runner-up to Michael Wood with 39 points. Wood amassed a very impressive 44 points.

Last year, Milton’s 12 year-old Robin Tiger Williams was awarded a golf scholarship in Florida after winning a world title in 2013 and the Wee Wonders British Championship in 2014.

Greetham Valley meanwhile have announced their chosen Captains Charity for 2015.

This year members will be digging deep for a young Stamford Rugby Club player.

Nine year-old Seb Goold fell out of a bus onto the A1 while returning from a rugby tournament in 2014 and suffered terrible injuries.

He had to have one of his legs amputated mid-thigh in order to save his life and so far has had to endure over 30 operations.

Funds raised will go towards a state of the art leg that costs somewhere in the region of £50,000.

Members and guests set the ball rolling by raising £750 at a members party on Saturday night which followed the Captains Drive-In.
