A PUPIL at Rydal Penrhos School in Colwyn Bay and gifted young golfer is continuing to make a name for himself across the region and beyond.

Charley Simpson, a Year 12 pupil at the school, has brought his game on considerably in recent years, earning accolades en route to becoming one of the brightest young talents in Wales.

Charley has spent the winter participating in Transitional Squad training weekends for the Wales Golf Elite Athlete Programme, as well as keeping up his personal training with his coaches and staff at Rydal Penrhos in the newly refurbished Fitness Suite.

This has involved many hours playing and practising all aspects of the game, in addition to Charley taking part in skills testing and also improving strength and conditioning.

All Charley’s hard work is paying off with some outstanding accolades.

He recently represented Wales under-18s against Ireland in a special challenge match that took place at Cardigan Golf Club and also turned out for his country at under-16 level during the prestigious Quadrangular tournament, which saw the Welsh contingent take on Scotland, Ireland and Holland at Pyle and Kenfig Golf Club.

Although Charley is above the under-16 age grade, the sport’s governing bodies are honouring 2021 selections after last year’s event was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Charley has also made a strong start on the course, which saw the Sixth Former secure qualification to the Scottish U18 Boys Championship in Aberdeen.

He has once again been given the distinction of junior captain of Rhos-on-Sea Golf Club for the third consecutive year and will skipper the North Wales Boys’ Team for the 2022 campaign.
