Golf: England girls’ squad announced to compete against the boys
The English Women’s Golf Association has chosen its team to play against the England boys for the annual match at Woodhall spa on Sunday 26th October.
Three members of the winning England team from the girls’ home Internationals will compete for the squad, these being; Heidi Baek (Felixstowe Ferry), Holly Clyburn (Woodhall Spa) and Helen Searle (West End).
The three are coupled by Hayley Davis (Ferndown), the South-West ladies’ scratch champion; Sian Evans (Faversham) the Kent schools’ champion; Rachael Goodall (Heswall), the Northern girls’ champion; Ellie Robinson (Middlesborough) who helped Yorkshire win the English counties’ championship; Lauren Taylor (Woburn) the English U15 champion; Hannah Turl and (Tidworth Garrison), a past winner of the English U13 title; Jamie-Leigh Voss (Kirby Muxloe), the English schools’ champion.
Last year the girls were beaten by the U16 boys 12-3 at the Ogbourne Downs in Wiltshire. However looking back to when the competition began, the girls’ side have been the most victorious. It should prove to be a close match between the two teams!
