North West duo in Vagliano Trophy showdown

THE Great Britain and Ireland team to face the Continent of Europe in the Vagliano Trophy match at Golf Club Bogogno in Italy on June 30 – July 1 announced by the R&A today includes Clitheroe’s Sophie Lamb and Delamere Forest’s Gemma Clews.

Elaine Farquharson-Black, who led GB&I to a memorable 11½-8½ win over the USA in the Curtis Cup at Dun Laoghaire last year, will captain the team and the Aberdeen-based lawyer will be looking to reverse a run of five consecutive wins by the Continent of Europe.

Claire Coughlan-Ryan continues in her role as captain of the Under-16 team to play in the Junior Vagliano Trophy match which runs parallel to the women’s competition.

Farquharson-Black said: “We have an excellent team, with a blend of youth and experience.”

Junior Vagliano Trophy captain Coughlan-Ryan added: “I look forward to working with a talented group of young golfers and trying to win the Junior Vagliano Trophy for the first time against the Continent of Europe.”

West Lancs player Hollie Muse is a second reserve.
