The club's head-coach Mick Sawyer, said: "I had a chat with Carl after the show and he said it was one of the best amateur events he has ever been to, which is fantastic news for the club.
"He had good words for all the lads and he was particularly impressed with Tyler Goodjohn which will obviously be a massive boost for him."
