The King’s Ely Golf Academy has qualified for the Independent Schools Golf Association (ISGA) National Plate Finals.

Senior students Thomas Stiff and David Harris, and junior pupil Paul Collington, competed in the finals of the regional knockout at Elton Furze Golf Club, near Peterborough, on May 24.

The team beat Oakham School at the event, meaning they qualified for the ISGA National Plate Finals being held at Collingtree Park Golf Club in Northampton on June 25.

On May 21, Paul and junior pupil Ben Collier also competed at the ISGA Junior Stableford, held at Sunningdale Heath Golf Club.

Ben won the individual net prize on the day and the pair came second overall.

It comes weeks after Paul won the Wellington College Silver Salver Team Nett Prize.

Ben won the Nett Division on the day and fellow Golf Academy member, Thomas Jackson, claimed second in the Individual Division.
