A further change has had to be made in the England squad to contest the annual Costa Ballena Quadrangular Tournament being played in Spain this week.

Matthew Nixon ( Ashton-under-Lyne , Lancashire) is unwell and is being replaced by Adam Keogh ( Boston West , Lincolnshire) in the six-strong line-up to face Spain, Finland and Germany at Costa Ballena on 27th - 29th January.

Keogh, 21 (photo © Tom Ward), was a semi-finalist in the English Amateur Championship at Woodhall Spa in 2008 and last year, when a member of the England 'A' Squad, he won the Lee Westwood Trophy at Rotherham. In 2009, he also represented the EGU in the Chiberta Grand Prix in Biarritz and finished tied seventh in the North of England Youths Championship.

The rest of the England line-up is: Jonathan Bell ( Royal Blackheath , Kent), Ben Loughrey ( Wrag Barn , Wiltshire), Tom Shadbolt ( Mid Herts , Hertfordshire), Matthew Southgate ( Thorpe Hall , Essex) and Josh White ( Chipstead , Surrey) as England seek to win the title for the first time since 2006 and end a run of three successive second places in the event.

The Costa Ballena competition is played on a round robin basis, each match comprising three foursomes and six singles.
