JUNIOR GOLF: Milton youngsters do well at county championships
The junior members at Peterborough Milton have been going great guns of late.
They returned from the Northants Junior Championships at Kettering armed with loads of trophies.
They won the net team title through the efforts of Sam Balaam, Jade Roberts, Adam O’Brien and Rylan Thomas with O’Brien winning the net boys championship, Balaam the Under 16 title and Roberts the Under 16 girls prize.
And for the third year running they will have a team in the final of the Cambridgeshire Friendly Cup on August 5.
In the semi-final they beat Ely City Golf Club 2-1 thanks to wins by Sam Ludlow and Ben Baker (7&6) and Charlie Armitage and Kai Raymond (2 up).
There was a new name on the winners’ rostrum at Greetham Valley this week as Pat Dawson won the ladies midweek stableford - her first competition win after many fallow years.
