Junior Order of Merit 2021
The pandemic affected Junior Order of Merit winners received their prizes at West Cornwall during the presentation for the Junior Maxam Cup at the end of January 2022.
Joint winners of the U18 OoM were Ethan Tempest (West Cornwall) and Archie Fox (Falmouth). The two could not be split in the results from the 6 events staged and thus shared the spoils.
Fox though was outright winner of the U16 Scratch OoM just pipping fellow clubmate and CGU Junior Player of the Year Isaac D'Bue by two points.
The U16 Handicap OoM was won by James Tucknott (West Cornwall) who had an 8 point margin over runner up Harry Drewett (Falmouth)

2018 Order of Merit Winners Receive Prizes
At the conclusion of the CGU Junior Maxam Cup competition at St Austell on 26th October 2018, the prizes were presented for the 2018 CGU Junior Orders of Merit season.

Liam Wilson (Truro) was the runner up in the former two categories and Ryan Gregory (St Mellion) was the runner up in the U16 Handicap OoM. CGU Juniors President Alan Lund presented Warren and Wilson with their prizes. It has been a good season for Warren. He was part of the Cornwall SWCGA Boys Championship winning team in July which then travelled to the English Boys County Finals the next month and he also won the CGU Depot Cup awarded for the best gross round in the Champion of Champions event staged in September.
