School stars to battle for Euro chance

Wensum Valley is to host an inter-school competition with top prizes of places in the pro-am at their EuroPro tournament in May.

The inter-school championship will take place on Tuesday, April 19. Schools are invited to enter teams of up to four youngsters, with handicaps, who will take part in an individual medal over the Valley course.

The best net score will win the championship trophy for their school and the player will qualify for the pro-am team. He or she will be joined by the players who return the two best gross scores in the competition.

The Europro pro-am, played on May 2, will team the youngsters with an impressive professional. Daniel Gaunt, the winner of last year's event, is now playing on the European Tour.

Wensum Valley professional Brad Jordan commented: 'We have had a fantastic response from schools so far and we are hoping for a very good entry.'
