In-form Gemma heading for more glory

DELAMERE Forest star Gemma Clews and  Annabell Fuller, from Roehampton, and will represent England in the Nations Cup at next week’s Helen Holm Scottish Women’s Open Strokeplay Championship.

The team trophy is awarded to the pair with the best aggregate score over all three rounds  from April 21-23. The first 36 holes are played at Troon Portland and the final round over the Old Course, Royal Troon.

Both players are in great form. Fourteen-year-old Fuller  was third individually in the women’s European Nations Cup last month and runner-up in the Harder Hall women’s invitational in Florida in January. She’s this week representing England in the French U21 women’s championship. Last year, the girl international won the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters and had six second places.

Clews, 22, has won two top scratch events this season, with a combined score of 20-under par. She claimed the Delamere Comboy Scratch on her home course for the fourth time, before following up with last weekend’s victory in the Hampshire Rose at North Hants. Last season she helped England win the women’s Home Internationals and was third on the England Golf Women’s Order of Merit.

The team reserve is Lancashire’s Sophie Lamb, 19, (Clitheroe) who is the British strokeplay champion.
