Despite having high hopes of winning the European Boys Team Championships for the first time in a decade, England’s youngsters including Louth’s Ashton Turner lost their third-place match 4½ – 2½ to Italy at Murcar Links in Scotland on Saturday.

England were on the wrong end of a 5-2 defeat against Norway in the semi-finals on Friday and their hopes of a third place finish went the following day.

After losing both morning foursomes, the young England team had a hill to climb but only Jack Singh Brar and Marco Penge won their singles while Ashton Turner secured a half in the bottom game.

Turner and Harry Ellis eventually went down 4 and 3 but Bradley Moore and further defeats gave Italy the win.
