Report by Boys Under 14 Manager Graham Oram;
Sunday 11 July will go down as the day England footballers narrowly failed to win the European Championship, but it was also the day our Under 14’s fought manfully to secure a draw against Essex and suffered a narrow defeat at the hands of Kent.
Special thanks must go to debutants James Pett and Euan Hardie, who came in at the last moment when Covid Isolation Orders were issued to a couple of the team. In Euan’s case he learnt of his selection less than 3 hours before tee off time at Canvey Island.
The Boyce Hill course, as the name as the name suggests is perched on the side of a hill with undulating fairways on most holes. Those that were able to enjoy a practice round benefitted enormously and everybody appreciated the efforts of coach Glenn Gardiner, who played the course earlier in the week, made detailed notes for the boys and was there on the day to explain in detail the intricacies of how best to play the course. Thanks Glenn.
The under 14’s remain top of the league with 5 points, followed by Essex with 4 points and Kent, who host the final match on the 8 August, with 3 points.
