The 17-yer-old Clitheroe player, in the last game, secured the victory with an impressive comeback. She had been one down with three to play but snatched her point with a birdie on the last hole.

Inci Mehmet and Alice Hewson led the way with wins at the top of the order, but then the French edged ahead by winning the next three games. Gemma Clews stopped their run when she won her match on the last green and shortly afterwards Lamb  sealed the result.
And Delamere Forest’s Gemma Clews also won on the final hole in the penultimate mate.
England women’s coach Steve Robinson said: “I was very pleased with the way we holed out and the fighting spirit that each of the players showed, taking matches down to the last couple of holes.”
