England v Ireland Under-16 boys at

Hunley Hall, Yorkshire this weekend

Having fought out a 7½ – 7½ draw with the Scotland last Sunday at Arbroath, England’s Under 16s will hope to go one better and gain a second successive victory against Ireland Under 16s at Hunley Hall in Yorkshire this weekend (October 10-11).
Seven of last weekend’s team will be in action again with Max Orrin (North Foreland, Kent) being added to complete the team of eight.
The rest of the team is:
Oliver Carr (Heswall, Cheshire), Seb Crookall-Nixon (Workington, Cumbria), Sam Edwards (Bigbury, Devon), Liam Harper (Lydd, Kent - picture © Tom Ward), Nick Newbold (Kedleston Park, Derbyshire), Toby Tree (Worthing, Sussex) and Colin Walsh (Hayling, Hampshire, IoW & CI).
Orrin made his debut in the Under 16 victory over Spain in August and is the South of England Boys Champion. In the past two years he has also finished tied second and third in the Douglas Johns Trophy.
Three members of the team, Carr, Newbold and Walsh won both their matches against the Scots, while Tree secured a win and a half.
Edwards, the Devon Boy and Under 16 Champion, made his England debut at Arbroath, as did Newbold, Tree and Walsh.
Newbold lost out in the five-way tie for the McGregor Trophy this year, was runner-up in the Midland Boys Championship and fifth in the recent Dutch Junior Masters.
Tree was the English Under 14 Champion in 2008 and recently won the Douglas Johns Trophy and the Sussex Boys Championship, while Walsh won the Hazards Salver for the best performance by an Under 16 golfer in the Carris Trophy.
Carr, last year’s Cheshire Junior Champion, played in the Under 16 international with Spain at Heswall while Crookall-Nixon, the English Under 16 Champion for the past two years, and Harper, third in the recent Dutch Junior Masters, played against the Irish last year at Bury St Edmunds which England won 15-5.
Saturday’s play will consist of four foursomes and eight singles with another eight singles on Sunday
