Junior Home Nations

Reigning champions Peterborough Milton had to settle for third position in this year’s Junior Team Home Nations tournament as Goodwood triumphed at Forest Pines GC, Lincolnshire.

Milton, who qualified for the national event for the second successive year after winning the England final at Ramside Hall last autumn, saw their title defence come to an end with a narrow semi-final loss to Welsh club Llantrisant and Pontyclun.

But the team of Shivani Karthikeyan, Charlie Pearce, Kai Raymond, Rylan Thomas, Euan Herson, Chelsey Sharp, Jacob Williams and Matty Mills bounced back the following day as they defeated Scotland’s Drumpellier by three points in the third place match.
