Dereham Golf Club’s juniors got the season off to a good start when they came along with their parents and grandparents to the pre-season evening last Friday.

Junior organiser Jane Bizley introduced the club’s dignitaries and junior committee members to those present and then explained the format of the evening.

She continued by telling the juniors what was in store for the coming year, with a full list of events.

New juniors Charlie Read and Noah White were given a warm welcome.

Andy Brown said he was to be the Monday Club co-ordinator and also asked for comments on the 2017 Christmas party. Everyone agreed they had a great time at Dereham Leisure Centre and this should be repeated in 2018.

Peter Brightwell talked about the inter-club matches for the coming season and said he would be assisted by Simon Crane, who would be taking over the role of match organiser.

Junior captain Maisie Farrelly addressed the juniors saying she had come up with a new team event for 2018 and hoped all juniors would enter by getting a team together.

She added that she hoped to run a friendly league between Dereham and a handful of other nearby clubs.

Captain Graham Howe talked about the club being involved in the town’s carnival this summer. The idea had come from Simon Crane at a recent junior committee meeting and was well received.

The club will looking for support from all members.

After everyone had given their reports there was time for some fun. The captain had everyone on their feet for ‘heads and tails’ which was won by Immy Leeder with runner-up Charlie Eke, both of whom received cash prizes.

Junior vice-captain Liam Kevern ran a golf-related quiz which went to a tie-break and still finished with Beth Buckingham’s team and Max Jacob’s team sharing the spoils.

Finally club professional Will Cross organised a putting competition which was won by seven-year-old Arthur Leeder.

Captain Graham Howe closed the evening by thanking Jane Bizley and the junior committee for all their hard work, he wished all a good golfing season and said he looked forward to a positive year ahead.
