Youngsters into quarter-finals

Maylands Golf Club clinched their place in the last eight of the Essex Youth Shield with a tense win at Bentley on Saturday.

Both sides went into the final group game with four wins under their belts, knowing another would take them through to the knockout stages.

And fine wins from Sam Bray (one up), Bailey Bryan (one up) and Ernie Grosvenor (3&2) saw Maylands seal a 3-2 victory and their third quarter-final place in six years.

Completing the successful Maylands squad were Sean Kennedy, Nathaniel Gleed, Cameron Perriment, Jack Staines, Ryan Parry, James Lanighan, Jack Haywood, Jake Henvey and Greg Jacques.

The next round of matches are due to take place on July 29 and Maylands are currently recruiting for their 2013 squad.

Anyone interested can contact junior organiser Danny Wallace on 07747 536012.

The club are also holding junior camps for eight to 13 year olds during the summer holidays.

Taking place on August 9 and August 30, from 10am-4pm, they will include lessons on short game, long game, putting and chipping, as well as fun competitions.

Lunch and drinks are included, but places are limited.

The cost is £35 per child and those interested can book by calling professional Darren Parker on 01708 341777.
