GLOUCESTERSHIRE won the English Women’s County Championship in a battle of endurance on the storm-swept links at Royal North Devon Golf Club.
Because of adverse weather conditions, the number of matches played was reduced and, at the start of play, Gloucestershire, Surrey and Buckinghamshire were all in the title hunt. But it was Gloucestershire who swept to victory, beating Buckinghamshire 5-1, while Surrey’s challenge was derailed by Staffordshire.
This is Gloucestershire’s second County Finals win, following success in 2016, and captain Andra Knight said: “They’re an incredible team and what they achieved was just amazing.”
