Three young Boston golfers are celebrating after receiving national acclaim for their skills over the past few weeks.

Billy Spooner, Jordan Wrisdale and Lois Williamson, all members of Boston Golf Club, have all seen success over the past few weeks after representing their country in national and international tournaments.

Nick Hiom who coaches all three said: “At a small club in a small town, to get three people who are about to represent the country is quite a decent result.”

Billy, 15, has recently been selected for the England under 18 Squad and has just returned from Canada.

He played for England in the Canada International Junior challenge, where he came second.

He said: “It’s been a really good season.

“I’ve been playing really well lately.”

He is now looking for success at the Faldo Series, with the finals being held in Greenbrier, West Virginia, on October 22.

Jordan, 17, has won three competitions in two weeks, starting with the Lincs Open.

He is one of the youngest competitors to do so, playing against professional and amateur golfers.

He then won the Midland Champion of Champions tournament and, last weekend, he won the England Champion of Champions competition.

Jordan said: “It’s been decent, it felt good to win.

“I’ve been putting in hard work and working on my game on weekends a lot to try and improve.”

Jordan has the North of England championship at the beginning of October to concentrate on now.

Nick said Jordan has a good chance of being selected for the England Under 21s.

Lois, 14, has been picked up for the nation’s under 16 girl’s squad.

She said she was exited, adding the selection process had been tough, but she was feeling good.
