Long Sutton Juniors Representing Somerset Boys and Girls Sides
Cameron Barrett and Stacie Watts have represented, respectively, Somerset Boys under 14 and Somerset Girls team over the past 2 weeks.
Cameron went to Glamorganshire Golf Club on Sunday 24th June after receiving his first call up for the Under 14 team playing against the Glamorganshire county side. Cameron had very good success in his first match playing in the foursomes and he won his game 4 and 3 playing very well with his playing partner and winning his first point for Somerset under 14s. Then in the afternoon Cameron had a singles match against a very strong 10 handicap player and trading shots over and over they both played some great golf and it was all square on the last. Both were off the green after their tee shots on the par 3 18th, then both hit close shots to the hole, but finally the Glamorganshire player holed his putt with Cameron just missing his meaning he lost on the last hole but he played very well throughout the day and we congratulate him on his success for his first outing for the Somerset Boys. The whole team did very well but they just lost on the result losing to the Glamorganshire side 8 1/2 to 6 1/2. Cameron has also been called up to play against the Wiltshire Under 14 boys side on the 31st July which is due to be played at Burnham and Burrow.
Stacie Watts was called up to the girl’s squad and played at Exeter Golf and Country Club playing against the Devon girl’s side last week. She played very well throughout the day in very good conditions but unfortunately lost her match. The overall result was a 4 - 4 draw between the Somerset and Devon sides. The next match for Stacie is to play at Taunton Vale playing against Gloucestershire's Girls side and that is due to happen on the 30th July so we congratulate Stacie on her call up for the next match.
Congratulations to Cameron and Stacie on their call ups for their respective matches in the coming weeks and we wish them the best of luck in their matches and hope for all the best.
