Big test for Gauteng North Juniors

Junior Player of the Year Rosswell Sinclair and Albert Venter will lead the Gauteng North into battle against Ekurhuleni in the first round of the South African Junior Inter-Provincial at Krugersdorp on Monday.

It might be their toughest match of the week, as the duo will face reigning Nomads SA Boys U-19 Stroke Play and Match champions, Tristen Strydom and Paul Boshoff in the opening battle.

Sinclair comes into the championship on the back of a tie for fourth at the Joburg Junior Open at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington on Friday, while Venter showed some good form to tie for 14th at the tough East Course.

This could be to their advantage, as the Ekurhuleni duo elected not to play the final stroke play event of the junior season.

Stefan Wears-Taylor and Estiaan Conradie will go up against Kyle McClatchie and Jason Froneman, while JP Cooper and Nicholaus Frade will combine against Dylan Mostert and Sentanio Minnie.

In the final pairing, Cliffie Thompson – a four-time winner this season, will partner with Kifenste Nukeri against Ruhan van Dijk and Chris van Tonder.

In the other A-Division matches, Western Province faces Limpopo and Central Gauteng go up against Southern Cape.
