BOYS HOME INTERNATIONALS

A strong Scotland squad will be looking to deny England their fourth Boys Home Internationals title in five years as the action gets underway at Conwy GC in Wales.


After being edged by the ‘auld enemy’ at Western Gailes last year, the Scots will be aiming to go one better after being right in with a chance of victory heading into the final matches.

In-form Sandy Scott heads the Scotland side after his three victories in 40 days, the last of which was the Scottish Boys Open Stroke Play Championship at Royal Burgess, while he’ll be ably supported by Calum Fyfe, who has achieved four top ten finishes since late June, and Rory Franssen, Andrew Thomson and Kieran Cantley, all of whom finished in the top five at Royal Burgess.

Conwy GC

Defending champions England have four members of last year’s winning side as they seek to defend the trophy, including Marco Penge, who comes into the event after wins in the Peter McEvoy Trophy, the Scottish Open Stroke Play Championship and the recent Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters.

Wales will be hoping that home advantage will help them achieve their first victory since the four nations format was introduced in 1996.  Welsh Open Youths Champion Tom Williams will be joined by Ben Chamberlain and Tom Froom from last year’s line-up with the remaining eight players making their debut.

The experienced Irish team features five players from the 2014 matches including last year’s R&A Junior Open Champion Kevin LeBlanc as well as Conor Purcell and Rory Williamson, who both finished tied fourth at the Irish Boys Amateur Open Championship in June.

The format of the event is a full round robin comprising of five morning foursomes and ten afternoon singles.

Scotland squad in full:

• Joseph Bryce (Bathgate);
• Kieran Cantley (Liberton);
• Chris Curran (Harburn);
• Rory Franssen (Inverness);
• Calum Fyfe (Cawder);
• Darren Howie (Peebles);
• Niall McMullen (Lundin);
• Murray Naysmith (Marriott Dalmahoy);
• Will Porter (Carnoustie);
• Sandy Scott (Nairn);
• Andrew Thomson (Lanark).
