Victoria Kelly has created history at Woodsome Hall.

The 16-year-old King James’s High School student has been appointed Woodsome Hall’s Junior Captain – the first female ever to hold that position in the club’s 94-year history.

She is looking forward to the 2016 season and currently plays off a handicap of six.

Victoria started playing golf when she was eight and showed a natural talent for the game.

A member of Woodsome Hall’s Junior team, she also represents the club in the Ladies Scratch team and is the current Ladies Scratch champion.

As well as representing Woodsome, she has been a member of the Yorkshire Under 18 squad for the past three years and played in numerous competitions against other counties around the country.

She is a member of Yorkshire’s Development Squad, taught by Lysa Jones (England Under 16 coach), and has just completed her winter coaching in preparation for the forthcoming season.

Victoria has recently gained selection to Yorkshire’s Senior second-team squad and played well in her first outing at Alwoodley, winning her match and helping Yorkshire on their way to a first win of the season.

This will be a busy year for Victoria, who sits her GCSE’s this year along with fulfilling her golfing commitments.

Coincidentally, Victoria will be followed into the role of Junior Captain for the 2017 season by another female golfer, Charlotte Eastwood, a fellow club and county team member.
