Amber poised for England challenge
Royal Cromer's Amber Ratcliffe will represent England in the Nations Cup team event at this weekend's Fairhaven Trophies in Lancashire.
The premier junior event starts today and continues until Sunday. England has entered three mixed teams in the Nations Cup, representing the English Women's Golf Association and the English Golf Union.
Each team has three members and all their scores over the first two rounds will count in the Nations Cup. Ratcliffe teams up with Nathan Kimsey (Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire) and Toby Tree (Worthing, Sussex).
Ratcliffe, 15, has been the English U16 schools champion for the past two years and is a schools' international. Last season she won both the EWGA East region ladies' and girls' championships. Most recently she was third in the Scottish U16 open strokeplay championship and a member of the winning England team. She trains with EWGA's Midlands Select squad.
Nathan Kimsey, 18, won this year's McEvoy Trophy and made his debut in the boys' Home Internationals last season, when he also won the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters. Toby Tree, 16, has been English U14 and U16 champion and was an U16 international. Last year he was also capped at the boys' Home Internationals.
