Junior Champions!

The Cookridge Hall Junior Team of Jeehvan Singh, Nathan Ali and Adel Watt won the 2015 Leeds and District Junior Knockout Cup in a thrilling final at Low Laithes Golf Club.

It was always going to be difficult as 14 year old Jeehvan was giving 5 shots to his opponent while 13 year old Nathan was giving 10 shots and 13 year old Adel was giving 9 shots.

Despite this Jeehvan won his match convincingly 4 and 3. Nathan took his opponent to the 18th before just failing to make a half and Adel finished all square. This meant that Adel and her opponent had to play extra holes to decide the winner. After a halved 19th hole Adel won the second extra hole despite giving her opponent a shot.

The team were a credit to the Club and must have been one of the youngest teams ever to lift the trophy.
