Harpenden Golf Club’s Jack Bigham has retained his place in a new-look England boys’ squad.

He and Dubai-based Josh Hill are the two to remain in the eight-strong squad, having missed out on representing their country in UK, European and world events because of the pandemic.

But they will look forward to home internationals and European team events on the horizon in 2021.

Performance manager Stephen Burnett said: “It’s an exciting time for golf in England and that’s reflected in the new young talents we have coming through into our boys’ squad.

“There is a great balance in this group with Jack and Josh already aware of what is required of squad members at this level.

“For the others, we are confident that they have the ability and the temperament to flourish in the set-up.

“It’s a young group but a very talented one who have the chance to carve out an exciting future in the game.”
