We very much encourage Junior and Academy members to arrange to play golf among themselves as well on a casual basis and when the clocks go forward and the weather is warmer we will start up the Thursday casual roll up evenings as well perhaps.

Match Reports

June
A Fulford Heath junior team comprising of Morley Gill, James Cope, George Hughes, Max Timmins, Remo Virgilio and Oscar Gill started their 2019 Junior West Midlands League campaign with a home match against a very strong Droitwich side on Saturday, with Max, Remo and Oscar making their debuts. They played well and gained valuable experience but in the end we lost the tie 2 matches to 1. Droitwich fielded 3 young girls in their team with handicaps of 5, 6 and 8 who’s golf was very impressive to watch. No doubt our team learned a lot from playing with them. James and Oscar had a fine win against one of the girls and her partner, well done both! We play again on July 21st with a home fixture against Redditch.
———————————————————–
21 July  Fulford Heath Juniors 2 – Redditch Juniors 1.  
A thoroughly enjoyable match between the 2 junior teams culminated in the first win of the season win for Fulford Heath Juniors.  James Cope and Oscar Gill remain unbeaten with a strong 6&5 win.  Santi Francolini and Pierce Cole were beaten 6&5 by a very good Redditch pairing but Morley Gill and Max Timmins secured the tie with a fine 5&4 victory.  With travelling reserves available from Redditch too, Remo Virgilio paired up with one of the Redditch parents to win a well contested reserves match 4&2 as well!  Well done to everyone involved.  Thanks to the Redditch team, Matt Clement – their Junior Organiser and visiting parents.  You are all a credit to your club.  We look forward to the return fixture against Redditch next Saturday.
