On the weekend of 16 & 17th of June Woking GC sent 12 boys to Maidstone for this year’s Pegasus Open. The first Woking boys to compete were our U14 boys, Josh Porter, Laurence Butler, Joel Ireland, Rudi Moriano and Charlie Rose. Josh finished 10th all around with only a mistake on the pommel, he scored 66.4 and also took home a bronze medal on the high bar with a very clean routine. In 16th was Laurence, scoring 64.1. Joel had a clean competition for the second weekend in a row and with a score of 63.65 finished 17th in the all around. Rudi was not far behind but a few mistakes on pommel and vault put him 19th with a score of 62.9, Charlie was only competing on 4 apparatus and with 4 clean routines it was a nice confidence booster going forwards, he scored 41.9 and finished 33rd.
