Hannah has now beeHannah Duval Junior Capt 2014n Junior Captain for a few weeks and has had chance to think more about the role and what she hopes to bring to it during the year.

What can you offer as Junior Captain?
I consider myself a team player and will support the girls in any situation when tensions can become high. I believe I have a calm and even manner both on and off the golf course. In a match situation I will try to enhance motivation and self-belief before the match to make sure everyone in the team has a fighting spirit. I am an extremely organised and hard-working person with a big drive to succeed – I never give up and I’m totally committed!

What’s your aim for the Juniors this year?
I’d like to see an improvement in the Elite Squad’s position for Junior County Match Week.  I will focus on helping the team mature and grow, as we have a fairly young Elite Team and I am the oldest in the squad at 17. I want to prepare them for the next couple of years to come and give them enough competitive experiences and an environment to help them grow. I have high hopes for the Development Squad and younger players such as Sasha, Lille-Beau and Chloe and they are already hitting the ball miles past mine (which is a little embarrassing!) I’m keen to motivate them and inspire them to carry on their golf.

Where will we see you this season?
I am playing in all the Girls Sussex events this year and in the Sussex Ladies Championships. I hope to be playing in the England Girls Open Amateur Championship at the Warwickshire, South Region Girls’ Championship at Cuddington and the Liphook Scratch Cup.
