ROTHERHAM'S Charlie Daughtrey will be part of a two-pronged England defence of the Nations Cup in next month’s McGregor Trophy – the English Under-16 boys’ open championship.

England will field two teams at the event at Royal Ashdown Forest, Sussex. Alongside England Under-16 international Daughtrey in one team will be Charlie Hilton, of Sussex, and Northamptonshire's Charlie Salter.

The other team will include James Cooper, of Wiltshire, Hertfordshire's Harry Goddard and Hugo Kedzlie (Lincolnshire).

Daughtrey and Hallamshire's Alex Fitzpatrick represented England in the Under-16 international against Spain last month.

The McGregor Trophy will be played from July 12-14 and the Nations Cup will be decided over the first two rounds, with the best two scores counting from each team on each day.

England won the Nations Cup last year on 14 under – 17 shots clear of the runners-up.

Daughtrey was ninth in last year’s North of England Under-16 boys' championship and had a top-20 finish in this season’s Peter McEvoy Trophy.
