The junior team from Parklands put up a valiant defence of the team championship trophy they won in 2012. This year's team consisted of Ryan Cruse, Samantha Malone, Niamh Lendrum and Kieran Buchan. The competition was played at Arcot Hall on Sunday afternoon and the Parklands team was a blend of experience and new talent. The unusual decision of the organisers was to play the girls in the team from the white tees and allocate them courtesy shots. The team performed admirably with good individual performances including a net 65 for young Kieran playing in his first major competition. The team were narrowly beaten into runners up position … However it was a splendid result in the circumstances … well done to you all.
