The Pleasington member won all her five singles matches, as did Eloise Healey from West Lancs,  as the  side was crowned Northern Counties champions to qualify for the England Golf Finals at Frilford Heath in September.

Lancashire got off to a flying start, dropping only half a point in their opening three matches but were put to the test by Yorkshire before  prevailing 5-4 then beat host county Cheshire by the same margin.

But there was plenty of nail-biting on the final day. After some very close matches the morning foursomes were halved.Townend swept to a 4 & 3 win at the top of the order in the singles then Royal Lytham’s Beth Garton followed with a valuable half point. Healey and Pleasington’s Catherine Roberts ensured victory by securing the points on the 15th green.
