GOLF: Woodhall Spa teenager will represent England


A Woodhall Spa Golf Club teenager will represent England Golf in the Nations Cup event at the Carris Trophy at Little Aston, Staffs, next week.

Seventeen-year-old Billy Spooner will be in one of two teams playing in the event over the first two rounds of the English under-18 boys’ open strokeplay championship, with the best two scores from counting each day. His team-mates will be Jamie Li, of Somerset, and Northumberland’s Matty Lamb.

Billy will also be in the six man England team contesting the Dutch Junior Open this week.

He first represented England in 2012 and contributed to last year’s successful under-16 campaign against the other home nations. He has had top 10 finishes in this year’s Fairhaven Trophies and South East of England Links Championship.
