North West women aim to reign in Spain

TWO North West women internationals have been named in England’s three-strong team team for the Nations Cup at the Spanish  Amateur championship on March 2-6 at Escorpion Golf Club.

They are Gemma Clews, from Delamare Forest, and Clitheroe’s Sophie Lamb who will link up with St Mellion’s Sammie Giles.

They were all members of England’s winning team at the 2015 women’s Home Internationals.

The Nations Cup event will be played on the first two days, during the stroke play qualifying for the matchplay stages. The best two scores from three will count in each of the two rounds.

The players:

Gemma Clews, 21, had top ten finishes in last year’s English women’s amateur and the Scottish and Irish stroke play championships. She tied 20th in the European Amateur and represented GB&I in the Vagliano Trophy.
