The top trio are the Year Nine pairing of Mark Hammond (11 handicap) and Laurie Owen (eight handicap) and Year 12 student Joe Smith (three handicap).

They finished runners-up in regional finals at Canons Brook Park GC against 30 teams covering East Anglia, London and the Home Counties.

This was after finishing runners-up in regional heats at Shendish Manor. There were 60 teams involved in these regional heats covering mid to south Herts.
