Romanby’s Ben Brown included in 2024 England Golf men’s squad

England Golf has named a 14-player men’s squad ahead of the new season – with nine new names featuring, including Romanby-based English Amateur champion Ben Brown.

Ben, Eliot Baker, Will Hopkins, Charlie Crockett, Matthew Dodd-Berry, Zach Little and Mark Stockdale join the squad, with Sam Easterbrook and Tyler Weaver making the step up from the England boys’ squad.

Six players will be UK-based, while eight players will receive additional support from coaches while attending their respective colleges in the US.

From last year’s squad – John Gough, Josh Berry and Frank Kennedy have all gone on to turn professional, with Berry picking up a DP World Tour Card – the second youngest ever to do so, aged just 18, behind only Rory McIlroy.

England Golf men’s squad manager Gareth Jenkins said: “We have a number of new faces this year who have impressed across various championships and we’re looking forward to the year ahead where the players will receive England Golf training sessions with support from world-class coaches, and feature in competitive opportunities around the world in 2024.”
