Nelson Golf Club Junior Captain Ben Short fronts the team who swept to victory in the Blackburn & Darwen Junior Town League by an impressive 49 points – five clear of nearest rivals Wilpshire.

The league, comprising 10 teams from as far afield as Pleasington and Rossendale was played in a foursomes format over nine matches, with two points per match won and a single point for a match halved.

The Nelson lads (pictured) didn’t lose one, won five and halved four.

Nelson Golf Club’s junior organiser Tony Drake said: “I am really proud of my lads, they are a great bunch, and conduct themselves in a manner which is a credit to Nelson Golf Club.”

Nelson’s team comprised Ben Short, Curtis Clarkin, Niall Ormerod, Joe Rogby, Scott Byrom, Callum Broadleday, Adam DeLooze, Ben Ross, James Kearsley, Declan Buksh, Jacob Gould and Charlie Ellis.
