McCullen selected for GB&I team

EIGHT English players including Lancashire’s Haydn McCullen  have been selected in the nine-man GB&I teams that will face the Continent of Europe in the Jacques Leglise Trophy and the St Andrews Trophy at Barseback in Sweden on August 29-30.



GB&I will be defending the Jacques Leglise Trophy following its 15-9 victory in Wales last year while it will seek to regain the St Andrews Trophy it lost to Europe two years ago.

Cullen will join up with Jamie Dick (Forest Hill, Gloucestershire), Bradley Moore (Kedleston Park, Derbyshire), Marco Penge (Golf at Goodwood, Sussex) and Ashton Turner (Kenwick Park, Lincolnshire).

All five were members of England’s victorious team in the Boys Home Internationals while Moore, Penge and Turner were members of the GB&I team that won the trophy 15-9 in Wales a year ago, bringing GB&I’s total of victories to 36 against ten for the Continent of Europe.

McCullen, 18, is the English boys champion following his playoff victory over Moore at Moor Park recently. McCullen helped Lancashire win the English County Championship last year and he also won this year’s McEvoy Trophy and reached the last 32 of the Amateur Championship.
