F1F helps Amy compete against the best

Amy Staveley, a talented young golfer from Filey, is now competing against the best players in the UK on a level playing field thanks to support from the Freeman 1st Foundation.

The charity has provided Amy with a grant to pay for the latest equipment as she strives to fulfil her sporting ambitions.

The seventeen-year-old has been playing golf since she was four and is now making a name for herself in the game.

Amy is the current Yorkshire Girls (U18) Junior champion and went forward to represent Yorkshire in the County Champion of Champions in September.

Representing Yorkshire against the junior champions from all other counties, Amy won the Junior Champion of Champions at Woodhall Spa.

Amy is also a member of the Yorkshire ladies 1st team and part of the England regional squad.

A hard worker both in the classroom and on the golf course, Amy is studying double sport and biology A levels at Scarborough Sixth Form College.

Stuart Sanderson, a trustee at Freeman 1st Foundation, said: “We are thrilled with Amy’s success to date. Progress in golf requires a big financial commitment and there is limited funding available.

“We are delighted to be able to support Amy in the next stage of her promising sporting career. Female representation is incredibly important, we want to ensure Amy can compete and thrive at the highest level.”

Amy said: “I would like to thank the Freeman 1st Foundation for the invaluable support. As technology improves, being able to upgrade my equipment allows me to compete on a level playing field against the best players in the country.”
