Nick Poppleton Brabazon

Brabazon Trophy champion Nick Poppleton is among the 11 leading players selected to represent England in the Men’s Home Internationals at Conwy Golf Club, Wales, from 12-14 September.

The team will take on the challenge of Ireland, Scotland and Wales as they bid to regain the Raymond Trophy, which they last won at Ganton, Yorkshire, in 2013. Since then, Ireland have been the champions – snatching victory from England last year by just half a game point.
