England Golf has announced the eight rising stars who will comprise the Boys' Squad for the 2019-2020 season.

After another fantastic year of development and achievement in 2019 - not only on home soil but at European and international events - the selectors have been able to draw from a deep talent pool and pick a strong group of players for the challenges.

The boys will convene at the National Golf Centre at Woodhall Spa early next month for the first of several team coaching sessions over the autumn and winter months. The squad will also benefit from a week of warm-weather training at the Quinta do Lago resort on Portugal's Algarve Coast in February.

As well as helping the players attain their individual goals for the season with one-to-one coaching sessions taken by lead coach Rob Watts, the focus for the boys this season is also to represent England at several key team events. These include the European Boys' Team Championships in Uppsala, Sweden and the Boys' Home Internationals which will be staged in August at Killarney Golf Club in Ireland.

Team manager Stephen Burnett said: "Throughout 2019, the performances from the boys have been outstanding with Conor's results rightly earning a lot of praise and attention and the team once again winning the Home Internationals.

"This is a new group which will gather for the 2019-20 season and we are hopefully that the lads fulfil their obvious potential in team competitions with England and in their development as individuals.

"The focus is always on key targets such as the Europeans and the Home Internationals and we are confident that with this group of boys we have the talent and character to enjoy another terrific year."

REMY MILLER SELECTED IN THE SQUAD

REMY MILLER (Prestbury GC - Cheshire): 17-year-old Remy finished 5th in the Fairhaven Trophy and tied 6th in the North Group Boys Qualifying. He also tied for 15th in the McEvoy Trophy and took part in the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters and German Boys.
