Having won the event for the first time in 21 years at Prestwick St Cuthbert in 2013, Glasgow will seek to repeat the feat in Sunday’s Scottish Boys Area Team Championship.

Staged at the impressive Machrihanish Dunes, an exciting day’s golf certainly lies in store, with foursomes and singles matches played.

The Scottish Boys Area Team Championship sees Scotland’s 16 Area Associations competing for the prestigious title, with each Area represented by their four leading Under-18 boys players.

First held in 1977, Glasgow were impressive seven-shot winners in 2013, while Lothians were victors on the previous three occasions.

Given they boast almost the same side as 12 months ago, Glasgow will again fancy their chances. George Burns, recent winner of the Stephen Gallacher Foundation Trophy (pictured), returns alongside Williamwood clubmate Fraser Davren and Cawder’s Calum Fyfe. Glen Burrett comes in for Alan Waugh to make up the quartet.

The Lothians will again hope to challenge, with Marriott Dalmahoy’s Murray Naysmith, recently impressing in the Carrick Neill Scottish Open Stroke Play at Panmure, among their number.

Fife boast the likes of Niall McMullen, the SGU Boys’ Squad player, while Michael Lawrie, son of Open champion Paul, is in the North East’s line-up, which also features Sam Locke and Adam Fisher. The Franssen brothers, Cameron and Rory, tee it up as part of the North’s team.

Last year, the North East edged second spot behind Glasgow, with Angus third and Ayrshire taking fourth place.
