A double celebration

A COUNTY-WIDE competition for junior golfers in Northamptonshire has ended in a double celebration for the Edwards family.

Brother and sister Mitchell and Raynor Edwards, who play at Whittlebury Golf Club, have hit double top in the Northamptonshire Order of Merit.

Mitchell, 17, won the boys’ section while Raynor finished as the leading girl player.

The rankings – run by the Northamptonshire County Golf Partnership on behalf of the Northamptonshire Golf Union and Ladies Association of Golf Clubs – featured eight events for the boys and nine for the girls, including the Boys’ and Girl’s County Championships.
