Teen golfers are pride of Aberdare
A group of young Aberdare Golf Club members will travel to Malaga in 2014
to compete against the best from Scotland, England and Northern Ireland
Junior golfers are the pride of Aberdare after reaching the national finals for the first time in the clubs 92-year history.
Aberdare Golf Club members Jake Parfitt, Tom Williams, Reece Glover, David Heard, Rhyddian Smith and Jordan Rees will travel to Malaga, Spain, in 2014 to compete against the best from Scotland, England and Northern Ireland.
The talented six won their division in the East Glamorganshire League to reach the semi finals.
They triumphed over Bargoed in the semis and then beat the Vale of Glamorgan in the final at Creigau to be crowned East Glamorgan Champions.
Following the history victory, the team qualified for the all-Glamorganshire final against West division winners Neath, where they cruised to victory.
In a tense final match in the Welsh Inter County finals, they narrowly squeezed past Abergelle on countback to qualify for National finals in Malaga.
Both Abergelle and Aberdare will compete for Wales in the tournament against the cream of young British golfers.
A club spokesperson said: Special mention and congratulations must go to the junior organisers Alan Evan and Joyce Rees who have worked tirelessly over the years.
They are here every Saturday morning, no matter what the conditions, and have seen many boys achieve both team and individual honours.
Some have even become professional golfers - but this must be the pinnacle of their work.
The club are very proud of everyones achievements.
