A GOLF club on the English/Welsh border is celebrating its young achievers.

The outstanding county and national achievements of Llanymynech Golf Club's 15-year-old Harry Goffin, Rhys Thomas aged 14 and Izzy Negron Jennings aged 13, has led the charge of around 30 younger golfers following in their footsteps.

Jack Humphreys, 11, has had a fantastic season winning the John Curley Rogers Trophy (18 holes) with 118 shots, the nine-hole President's Day competition with 48 shots, the seven-hole Captain's Day competition with 33 shots and the six-hole putting competition – the Griffiths Cup – with an amazing 10 putts.

Meanwhile, 10-year-old Denni Coleman, has also had a great year winning the Bernard Thomas Seven-Hole League with a best score of 39 shots, and came runner up in her age group on the County Peewee Tour at both Oswestry Golf Club and Market Drayton.

Julia Line, from the club, explained: "We have had some fantastic support this year, from staff at the club, parents and volunteers, but also from the Oswestry Sports Forum who provided a grant for forward Junior tees and new flags for the academy course, and Steve Jennings from Primesave who sponsored some very smart junior T-shirts. I thank you all.”
