REIGNING England boys' champion Ben Amor (Marlborough, Wiltshire) heads the team representing England Golf the annual Costa Ballena Quadrangular Tournament in Spain from January 22-24.

The six-strong squad is made up of Bobby Keeble (Crowlands Heath, Essex), Paul Kinnear (Formby, Lancashire), Jamie Bower (Meltham, Yorkshire), Robert Burlison (Oxley Park, Staffordshire) and Adam Chapman (Windermere, Cumbria).

Amor, 18, became boys' champion when he won the Carris Trophy in a three-way play-off at West Lancashire last July, beating Italy’s Renato Paratore and Bath’s Jamie Li.

Amor also won all six of his games for England in the Boys' Home Internationals, finished third in the Welsh Open Youths Championship and fourth in the Canadian Junior Challenge.

He ended in third place on the Titleist/FootJoy 2013 England Golf Boys Order of Merit.

The Costa Ballena competition is played on a round robin basis over three days against teams from Finland, Germany and hosts Spain.

After six runners-up finishes, including last year when they lost by half a point, England will hope to land the title for the first time since 2006.
