ENGLAND Golf have announced the men’s squads for their 2017/18 training programme – including Malton & Norton's David Hague.

The 21-year-old is part of a new-look national line-up after almost all the previous members departed for the pro ranks.

That call-up is fitting reward for Hague, who enjoyed a stellar 2017, which most recently included victories at the North of England Open Amateur Championship and – alongside fellow Yorkshireman Nick Poppleton – the County Plate.

That double success capped a year in which Hague represented England at home and abroad and won the Lagonda Trophy at Gog Magog GC, and the York Rose Bowl at The York GC.

He was also runner-up in the West of England Strokeplay Championship, the Yorkshire Amateur Matchplay Championship at Hallamshire GC and in the Yorkshire Union of Golf Clubs’ Amateur Championship at the Cleveland GC.

In addition, he finished third in the Berkshire Trophy and reached the last 32 in the English Amateur Championship.

Hague is joined in the England squad by Jake Burnage of Devon, Todd Clements of Essex, Jack Gaunt of Staffordshire, Matthew Jordan of Cheshire, Gian-Marco Petrozzi of Staffordshire, Charlie Strickland of Sussex and Andrew Wilson of Durham.

Burnage, Jordan and Petrozzi have all been promoted from last year’s A squad.

The A Squad has four new members joining George Bloor of Derbyshire and Josh McMahon of Cheshire. They are Bailey Gill of Yorkshire, Ben Jones of Northamptonshire, Tom Sloman of Somerset and Poppleton of Yorkshire.
