An impressive field of 10 boys turned out for the first junior competition of the year at East Devon, writes Martyn Lewis.

The course was in good condition as usual and fully open despite recent wet weather.

The leading scorer on the day with an excellent 43 points was Matt Lewis, who had his handicap reduced by five shots from 24 to 19.

His nearest competitor was his older brother Danny Lewis, with 33 points, followed by Oliver Wiltshire in third place continuing his good form with 29 points.

The rest of the field found scoring a little trickier on the day, but there will be plenty more opportunities as the junior golf season gets under way!
