Gemma stars in South of England Schools Championship

Stanmore's Gemma Allman was part of the winning Middlesex team at the South of England Schools Championships on Tuesday. Priya Pankhania also from Middlesex won the girls individual championship with a two round total of 158, a great score in relentless rain. This is the first time that a Middlesex girl has won this title, in a competition that has been running since 1979; a terrific achievement! Second, only three shots behind, was Gemma Allman with a two round total of 161. These two girls now qualify to play in the National Championships on 23rd June, which this year is to be held at Enfield Golf Club. If they do well there they will then be playing for England Schools. Middlesex girls won the team championship with a four round total of 319. This score was 15 shots better than the Kent girls who were in second place. Middlesex have only won this event once before, in 1994. The Middlesex team consisted of Priya, Gemma and Amina Eriguchi. Well done Gemma and good luck in the National Championships.

Gemma was also part of the Stanmore Junior team that beat Moor Park 4 - 0 last Sunday.
