Spalding teenager Hugo Kedzlie has been named in the England boys’ team.

They will set out to defend the Nations Cup in next month’s McGregor Trophy – the English under-16 boys’ open championship – at Royal Ashdown Forest, Sussex.

Kedzlie is in England’s team one with James Cooper (Wiltshire) and Harry Goddard (Hertfordshire).

Team two is Charlie Daughtrey (Yorkshire), Charlie Hilton (Sussex) and Charlie Salter (Northamptonshire).

The McGregor Trophy will be played from July 12 to 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 and were 17 shots clear of the runners-up.

Kedzlie (15) was ninth in the under-16 spring championship, 16th in the Midland boys’ county championship qualifying and 24th in the Fairhaven Trophies.
