Stoke by Nayland's super-talented 15-year-old member Lily May Humphries has been awarded the Rising Star Award at the 2018 England Golf Awards.

The youngster attributed her win, which follows an incredible year in which she won seven international titles, to her family, as well as the coaching team at the Suffolk venue. 

The young Essex golfer had been recognised alongside some of the biggest names in the game – including Race to Dubai and European Tour winner, Tommy Fleetwood, and European amateur champion, The Open silver medallist and Walker Cup player, Alfie Plant.

The award has been selected by the judging panel from a record-breaking entry which shines the spotlight on fantastic achievements in golf in England by volunteers, coaches, clubs and counties.

Lily May was thrilled to receive the award; "It’s been an incredible year and to be recognised in this way is very special. I’ve had such amazing support from my family and the coaching team at Stoke by Nayland and I really hope I can continue my good form through 2018."

Her coach Roly Hitchcock, Head Pro at Stoke by Nayland Golf Club, stated: `Lily May’s progress this year is indicative of the hard work and dedication she has shown. Twinned with her natural ability, I am sure Lily May can build on her success of 2017 and I am delighted her achievements have been recognised in this way’
