England will meet Ireland in title showdown

Defending champions England will meet Ireland tomorrow in the title decider at the Senior Women’s Home Internationals at Newport, Wales.

Both teams have a 100% record of two wins from two matches so far, with England defeating Scotland 5.5-2.5 today, having previously beaten Wales 5-3.

England captain Debbie Richards commented: “It will be a big day tomorrow for both teams as the winner will lift the trophy.” England are aiming for their fourth consecutive win and their 11th overall victory in this championship. Today, the team made a great start to the match, winning all three foursomes.

In the afternoon singles the matches were very tight and after nine holes could have gone either way. But England fought hard in the windy and cold conditions to eventually secure a comfortable win. In the other match Ireland beat Wales 6-2, having previously beaten Scotland by the same margin.
