England’s senior women won the silver medal at their European team championships in Slovakia, adding to the England women's gold medal, and the girls bronze.

The senior women were top seeds for the match play stages of their European team championship at the Golf Resort Skalica and they eased their way to the final.

However, their gold medal campaign ended today when they were beaten 3.5-1.5 by France in a four club, swirling wind.

Team captain Debbie Richards commented:

“The team played brilliant golf but France just holed a few more putts. Next year….”

The England foursomes pairing of Caroline Berry and Lulu Housman continued their invincible performance and won their match 4/3, giving them a perfect score of three wins from three games in the match play.

But the French always had the upper hand in the singles and won the three points necessary to take the title by beating Fiona Edmond, Aileen Greenfield and Julie Brown. Jackie Foster’s game was declared a half.
