Wrag Barn Juniors are on course for an unprecedented clean sweep of County team honours.

The juniors have enjoyed a remarkable season to date, tasting success in all four of the competitions played and have reached the final of the one remaining team event.

In May, the team of Guy Drayton, Eddie Alexander and Kyle Campbell secured Wrag Barn the Wiltshire Junior Team Shield at Cumberwell Park.

This victory allowed the squad to represent Wrag Barn at Wiltshire in the National Team Shield Final held at Woodall Spa, Lincolnshire.

After finishing day one in 14th place, the Wrag Barn team had an excellent second day, finishing an impressive joint 6th place in the 39-team strong field.

In August, Wrag Barn were crowned Wiltshire Junior Champions, having pipped High Post Juniors to first place in the WhiteMoon League.

Wrag Barn claimed wins against High Post, as well as Cumberwell Park, Broome Manor, and finally North Wilts but after a defeat at Tidworth, had to rely on the better game points difference after High Post had also registered four wins and one defeat.

The squad of junior captain Lewis Ward, Guy Drayton, Oli Jeans, Kyle Campbell, Ashleigh Thorne, Jarvis Bell, Harry Hillerby, Ollie Clements, Caitlin Carney and Oliver Webb now progress to the South West Regional Final of the Junior Team Golf Championship to be held at Minchinhampton GC on 23 September.

Wiltshire Junior Golf also runs a three-aside league, the Ridgeway League, with Wrag Barn the defending champions.

The squad of Seb James, Nathen Miller, Cameron Scott and Kasper Mason-Phelps retained the Ridgeway League (Pool B) title with three wins and one draw from their four matches.

The team defeated Broome Manor (home and away) and Marlborough but the league victory was only finalised with an away draw against The Wiltshire in August.

Wrag Barn’s Juniors then moved onto Finals Day, this year hosted by Cumberwell Park where all clubs compete in a six-aside stableford competition for the Finals Day Shield.

Wrag Barn were defending Champions and the team of Lewis Ward, Guy Drayton, Oli Jeans, Eddie Alexander, Kyle Campbell and Caitlin Carney proved too strong for the opposition running out winners by 15 points.

Carney picked up the individual award as she notched a stunning 43 points.

Wrag Barn will compete for the remaining county team honours in October when they play Tidworth in the final of the Wiltshire Junior Knock Out, the squad of Lewis Ward, Guy Drayton, Oli Jeans and Kyle Campbell beating Upavon, Bowood and Marlborough on the way.
