Recently Connor won the St Neots Junior Championship and the Men’s Championship in a thrilling play-off to become the youngest ever winner in the club’s history.

Also, at this year’s annual Ian Poulter Junior Invitational international golf competition at Woburn, he collected the third nett and longest drive on the day prizes.

Kier chief executive Paul Sheffield is delighted to link up with the talented duo.
