Having won their match against China Fleet at the Quarter Final at Carlyon Bay last Tuesday our Junior team took their place in the semi-finals and final of this years competition at Tehidy Golf Club on September 1st.  They were drawn against a strong side, West Cornwall, in the semi-final in the morning whilst Merlin were drawn against Carlyon Bay, the winner of each match to play the final in the afternoon.  The remaining two sides to play for third and fourth places in the afternoon. 

Unfortunately, despite a determined effort we lost our match against West Cornwall in the morning and Merlin lost their match against Carlyon Bay.  Carlyon Bay and West Cornwall fought it out in the afternoon and Carlyon Bay emerged victorious.  Our match against Merlin for third and fourth positions was very well fought, despite having already played 18 holes in the morning.  But after a quick relax over lunch followed by some practice on the putting green, like true professionals our side put up a great fight with some fantastic golf shots on display from everyone bringing in a great win to place us third in the competition. Sam Jarvis (5 and 4,) Lauren Williams (3 and 2), Dan Pooley (2 and 1), Anna Clagett (2 and 1) and Sam McCloskey (4 and 3) with Jake Sanders and Joe Combellack halving their matches.
