Braintree Golf Club juniors Todd Clements and Ed Fullalove played a major part in helping Essex win the English Boys’ County Championship at Sandiway in Cheshire.

Clements won five of his six games and Fullalove four of his five as the Essex team stormed to victory, beating Durham 7½–1½, Wiltshire 6-3 and Derbyshire 8½–½.

“The boys did a superb job and they finished in style,” said Essex manager Brian Collins.

“To win our region and to get to the final was an achievement.

“To win the championship again is a real boost for Essex."
