IMMY Williamson continues to show she is a rising star on the international golf scene.

The 14-year-old will represent England next month on the back of a summer of success.

Williamson, who plays off a +1 handicap representing Delamere Forest Golf Club, will feature among a 12-strong boys and girls England under 16s squad against Ireland in an international challenge match.

The match will take place in the hills overlooking Cork harbour at Douglas Golf Club, Ireland, on October 9-10

It will not be the first time Williamson has represented her country this year.

The King’s School Chester student played her part in helping England under 16s girls beat Switzerland in a challenge match at Heswall Golf Club last month.

Her performances have certainlybeen eye-catching in 2021.

She won the Cheshire Girls title at Prestbury and was the runner-up in the Cheshire Ladies Championships to England star Bel Wardle.

She also played well for Cheshire in the Northern Counties championships at Alnmouth.

Williamson then stepped up to play in the English Girls Under 18s Championships at Malton and Norton GC, Yorkshire, where she finished in a very creditable sixth place with a +9 score of 297.

Her nest big event proved to be the England Girls Under 14s Championships at Morecambe GC where she finished as the runner-up.

Jenny Henderson, assistant women’s performance manager, will be with Williamson and the rest of the squad in Ireland and said: “After a difficult few seasons for players in this age group with schedule cancellations and lack of playing opportunities as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s great to head back out on course to support a squad at the start of their international careers.

“I know they will bring a will to learn, the passion to compete and an infectious team spirit.”

Men’s performance manager Stephen Burnett added: “The autumn international against Ireland under 16s has always been a keenly fought battle marking the end of the annual England junior match schedule and we expect this year to be no different, especially on Irish soil.

“However, we have an exceptional vein of talent in this age group presently.

“Confidence is flowing through the team after a successful summer and I fully expect the players to keep the momentum going into our final fixture of 2021 and finish the season on a high.”
