Marsh leads England to glory

Elland’s Nick Marsh was the star man as England won the Canadian International Junior Challenge for the fifth time in a row.

Marsh, who has played out of Lightcliffe and Elland before switching to the Huddersfield club this year, had rounds of 70, 72 and 71 at Oslerbrook Golf and Country Club in Collingwood, Ontario.

His three under par total gave him the individual honours by a six-shot margin from fellow England player Bradley Moore.

It also helped England win the team event by a massive 22-shot margin from Canada with Columbia third and Mexico, Norway and the United States further back.

“To win any international competition is always very pleasing, and to win this event five times in a row, it is thrilling,” said England’s team boss Steve Morrison.

Marsh is in action much closer to home next Saturday when he competes in the English Junior County Champion of Champions event at Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire.

He qualified for the event by winning the Yorkshire Boys title.
