COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP

WILTSHIRE BOYS WIN TITLE IN A THRILLER

Wiltshire played their hearts out to win the English Boys’ County Championship for the first time in a thrilling finale at King’s Lynn Golf Club.

They were pushed all the way by Northamptonshire, who were playing in County Finals for the first time, but Wiltshire (image © Leaderboard Photography) found the answers when it counted and eventually won 6-3.

“I am so proud of them, I can’t praise the lads enough, they have been absolutely outstanding. I can’t single out one person, it’s a team effort and everyone played their part,” said manager Ian Welding. “This is absolutely fantastic and massive for the county.”

Congratulations to Tom, Dom and Charlie, a fantastic effort. 

Wiltshire had 4½ points in the bag and had to secure another half point to win the title. It was provided in grandstand style by Dom Burgess who won the 18th to square his match and win the championship. He played a superb chip from above the green which finished within inches of the cup and gave him a par, while his opponent, playing from a similar position, failed to get up and down.

Afterwards Welding revealed that Burgess had suggested he be dropped for the final session because he didn’t think he was playing well enough. “He was wavering, but I had no doubts at all because I know what he can do under pressure – and I was so pleased for him,” said the manager.

Another fighting performance sealed the result for Wiltshire when Tom Stagg won his match on the 18th with a solid par.
