CAMBS and Hunts Ladies retained the County Week trophy last week after a tight competition at Apsley Guise Golf Club, near Milton Keynes.

Despite losing 5-4 to Bedfordshire last Tuesday, C&H got their campaign going with a 2.5-0.5 victory in the morning foursomes against Suffolk.

Singles wins for Sarah Attwood and St Neots' Paula Parker in the afternoon over Suffolk sealed a 6-3 victory for C&H.

With Bedfordshire having beaten Norfolk 7-2, C&H needed a good win over Norfolk in the final day's play.

A 2-1 victory in the morning foursomes got C&H off to a good start before Norfolk pulled it back with a win in the opening afternoon singles match.

A run of good wins from the C&H ladies in the ensuing matches saw them finish the day as winners by 6.5-2.5.
