Gregor Tait of Ipswich and Seckford, keen to break into the Suffolk junior golf representative squads, faces an intriguing first round tie against Matt Mann of Woodbridge in the Suffolk junior match play championship at Fynn Valley on Thursday.
Mann has the extra experience but Tait could cause an upset if Mann is below his best.
Mann, however, was the best of the four Suffolk players in the Faldo Series at Hollinwell. He finished eight shots behind the winner with scores of 75 and 74. Other Faldo series scores were Rob Salter 79 75, Chris Vince 77 79 and Will Morcombe 82 89.
Jasper Johnson, the holder of the match play trophy, meets Kane Mayes in an interesting first round tie with Mayes playing on his home course.
The winner plays either Jed Seeley of Newton Green or Jordan Bloomfield of Rushmere.

There will be a keen match between Josh Driver of Diss and Lewis Whiting of Haverhill, two of Suffolk’s leading under 15 players.
