The team from Walsall Golf Club will defend the title when the English Champion Club Tournament takes place at Dudsbury Golf Club in Dorset on 21st – 22nd September.

Not only that but the Walsall line up will be the same as that which lifted the title at Stoneham near Southampton a year ago through brothers Freddie and Henry Sheridan-Mills and Lewis Pearce.

On that occasion they won by three strokes from Farrington from Somerset, who are also making a return with two players from their 2012 line up, Tom Small and Stuart Ponfield.

There are three more former champions in the field of 34 teams, notably Brokenhurst Manor from Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Channel Islands, winners in 1988 and 2007. Their team includes Martin and Jonathan Young who were members of the 2007 winning team while Martin won the England Mid Amateur Championship in 2006.

The other past winners in the field are Workington from Cumbria and Worksop from Nottinghamshire. Workington won at North Hants in 2009 and their team includes two of that line-up in William Bowe and Mark Cowan, while Worksop were the 1993 winners at Rotherham.

Michael Saunders, the England international, is in the Dartford team from Kent, who were also involved at Stoneham last year when they finished 11th. Daniel Byrne, another member of that team, is playing again while Tom Bayliss completes their line-up.

Matty Lamb, an under 16 cap and winner of this year’s Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters, is in the Hexham team from Northumberland, the Durham side includes Andrew Wilson, winner of the recent North of England Youths Championship, while Matthew Myers, an under 16 international, is in the Northants County line-up.

Simon Richardson, the Lincolnshire county champion, is in the Spalding team, the Royal Ashdown Forest team includes Sussex champion Andrew Smith, while the team from Exeter Golf and Country Club includes Oliver Cowl, who was part of the Devon team in the recent Boys County Finals at Kedleston Park.

Each team will field three players and all three scores will count over 36 holes.
