Congratulation to the East Devon Golf Club Junior team who won the East Devon Junior League for 2013, writes Judy Murray.
As well as the trophy which will be presented later in the year they won a place in the Devon finals and will play against the qualifying teams from North and South Devon. The finals will be held at Exeter on Thursday, October 31.
There are seven other clubs in the League - Honiton, Tiverton, Exeter, Padbrook Park, Exminster, Fingle Glen and Crediton. The teams are split into two and each team plays home and away. East Devon managed to win their League with Honiton as the runners up. The semi-finals saw East Devon beat Crediton at Tiverton and Honiton beat Tiverton at Crediton. The final was played at Crediton on September 15.
East Devon has been lucky to have a squad of 10 players to choose from and all have acquitted themselves with excellence.
The picture shows the team that played in the final - Ben French, the junior captain, David Priestner, Emily Morey, Maddie Stone, Evie Stone, Jack Sharland, and James Underwood. Missing are Jake Prophett, Charlotte Husband and Sam Corney.
The trophy will be presented to the team at the Club Prize giving evening in November and perhaps they will be able to add the Devon final trophy to their tally.
