Jamie and Joel go forward

Two members of the Chesterfield College golf team have progressed following great performances at the Derbyshire Schools’ Golf championships.

Sports students Jamie Boler and Joel Stubbs were in top form at the event, which was staged at Belper’s Chevin Golf Club.

Jamie’s net score of 66 and Joel’s 67 were good enough to earn them a place in the matchplay championships at Matlock Golf Club in September.

Jamie also qualified for the Midlands Championships at Hollinwell-based Notts Golf Club.

There were six members of the Chesterfield college team and the other four - Josh Vardy, John Callan, Adam Kitchen and Jordan Lemon - just missed out on progressing to the next stage despite playing good rounds.

A record number of schools and colleges entered the 34th county schools’ event which attracted more than 80 competitors.
