21 May - South West Week Team

Paul Garland, County Captain

Paul Garland, County Captain from Lansdown, has announced his team to represent us at South West Week.

 

The event is the pinnacle of amateur golf in our region, and this year it is being played at Weston-Super-Mare Golf Club from Saturday 10th June until Friday 16th June.

 

Our team for the event is:-

 

  • Nick Day (Henbury)
  • Andrew Hale (Chipping Sodbury)
  • Noah Hessey (Long Ashton)
  • Haider Hussain (The Kendleshire)
  • Alex Ireland (Brickhampton Court)
  • Joe Long (Lansdown)
  • Jake Phillips (Cotswold Hills)
  • Laurie Potter (Cotswold Hills)
  • Mitch Waite (Filton)
  • Tom Workman (The Players Club)
  • Calum Mortimore (Henbury) - non-traveling reserve

In announcing his team, Paul emphasised how difficult it had been to make the final selections, and having been disappointed himself to miss out on a couple of occasions in the past he knew what it felt like to be in that position.

 

Paul's advice to those who had just missed out was to knuckle down and force your way into the team for 2018.

 

A special mention must go to Alex Ireland (pictured above) who will be making his first appearance, not only at South West Week, but also for the County 1st Team. Alex, twenty years old, has forced his way into the reckoning with impressive performances in both The Ashton Vase and County Championship, and is sure to enjoy his first experience of County Golf at this level.

 

As always, we wish Paul and his team the very best of success. It would be great to see a huge Gloucestershire support cheering them on.
