IT WAS a memorable summer for talented young golfer Charley Simpson.

The Rydal Penrhos pupil achieved an exceptional amount on the golf course, further enhancing his reputation as one of the best young prospects anywhere in the country.

His achievements were vast, which was crowned by Charley winning the Welsh under-16 Boys and Open Championship after a stunning final round to emerge victorious by three strokes.

The Year 12 pupil at Rydal Penrhos was also part of the Wales U16 squad who took on Ireland, which was arranged quickly after the prestigious annual Quadrangular Tournament was cancelled for a second-straight year due to Covid-19 health concerns.

Charley left a fine impression on the national stage and he’s earned another call-up to the Welsh U16 set-up for a high-profile fixture against England.

The special challenge match at Trentham Golf Club sees Charley form part of an eight-player team set to do battle against their English counterparts.

They begin the weekend with a practice round on Friday, before heading into singles and pairs over the next two days.

This promises to be a stern test for the Welsh contingent, with England having a much wider pool of players to select from and some are ranked extremely high at the European level.

Charley, who is also the Junior Captain at Rhos on Sea Golf Club, has had a busy summer seeing strong performances in competitions and has played at Trentham before, putting in a great three rounds at The Reid U14 Championship in 2019
