Golf: Wanstead win Essex Youth Shield
PUBLISHED: 15:00 19 September 2019
Wanstead Golf Club saw their youngsters claim the Essex Youth Shield in fine style after beating Chelmsford at Frinton.
Most of the nine-strong squad set off at 6am for the trip to the coast, to allow for some practice before the first 9.30am tee time.

Tilly O'Leary lost 6&5 to Rosie Boyce, but Shinil Balakrishnan won 7&5 against Amy Calden, despite giving away 13 shots.
And that left Josh Hussein as the last Wanstead player on the course, in match four, and he secured victory with a fine two-putt to beat Megan Dawson 4&3.
Junior organiser Graham Shepherd said: "It was a great day for the club. The match was played in good spirit by both teams and well supported by parents, relatives, friends and Wanstead members who made a 150-mile round trip."
