Somerset Under 14 Team

Somerset's Under 14 side play a series of competitive matches throughout the season against our neighbouring counties. The squad is generally selected in the autumn in order to participate in the winter training and coaching programmes established by the Manager and Performance Coach. However, they will always be looking out for emerging talent identified by the Develeopment Group that run alongside, as well as keeping an eye out for newcomers, either those new to the game or who move into the area. The matches we play are:

  • Jack Roberts League. We compete with Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Wiltshire for the Jack Roberts Memorial Trophy. This was presented by the Dorset Golf Union in honour of their former Juniors Secretary from Weymouth
  • Friendly matches are played against Glamorgan and Gloucestershire
  • South West Counties Golf Association (SWCGA) Under 16/Under 14 Championship. We take a team of 9 boys, 6 Under 16s and 3 Under 14s to represent Somerset in this annual competition. The boys will compete individually for the respective SWCGA Championship. Collectively they will compete for the Inter-Counties Shield with the best 7 scores to count. We play against Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.

Performance Coach

Ian Vibert

Having turned professional at Oake Manor Golf Club in 2005 I split my time between coaching all levels of golfer and playing regional events. I enjoyed developing a large client base, building up the junior section and working to introduce golf to local schools. I then looked abroad to develop my coaching further. After coaching in America and Australia I returned in 2013 to Somerset to take on my current role as Director of Golf at Millfield Prep school. The program at Millfield Prep has grown to include young golfers competing at national, regional and county level.

I am proud to be the Under 14s Performance coach and have introduced the two Somerset Futures squads that sit below the main under 14s squad. The Futures squads act as a great way to get the best golfers at younger ages together and help them be prepared for representing Somerset in the near future. 

Geoff and Martin complete the under 14s team and share my dedication in helping all the boys realise their golfing potential. I look forward to seeing the under 14s progress through the age groups with the other coaches to the Somerset first team and beyond.
