Mahmut claims Junior Open prize on home turf

Romford youngster Dylan Mahmut won the annual Romford Junior Open, sponsored by F Barnes Solicitors, on home turf late last week.

A total of 40 youngsters from across the county were competing for the Scratch trophy and handicap prizes.

But it was England under-18 squad player Mahmut who took the main prize with a stellar round of 74 to win by one shot from Abridge rival Joshua Boxall.

Romford’s Sam Booth took the under-18 prize with a net 71 and Mac McGuire and Sam Oakes claimed a club 1-2 in the under-14 competition after net rounds of 65 and 69, respectively.

Charlie Haddon, also of Romford, took second place in the under-16 event with a net 70.

There was a close battle in the girls event, with Monika Solanki of Hainault defeating Romford’s Kayssai Hurley on count-back after both had carded net rounds of 72.

n Maylands amateur William Kelly and club professional Darren Parker will bid for a place in the final of the Lombard Trophy later this month.

Kelly, a 58-year-old printer from Dagenham, won a club qualifier with a net 66, playing off a 22 handicap.

And he will team up with Parker for the regional final at Orsett on June 24, when pairings will be chasing 16 places at the 36-hole final at Gleneagles in September.
