Brampton Park lifted the Grace Norman Trophy - following drama on the final hole of the final match.

Ann Norman sank a crucial putt to clinch victory against The Links in the Cambs & Hunts Ladies County Golf Association inter-club foursomes event at Ramsey GC.

Brampton Park triumphed against Gog Magog at the semi-final stage with Lynda Hall and Kay Osborne prevailing 3 & 2, while Mo Poole and Karen Large were 4 & 3 victors.

That set up a showpiece clash against The Links in which Hall and Osborne were beaten 1 up before Poole and Large won 3 & 2.

The deciding match involving Norman and Fay Allison was all-sqaure coming to the 18th, but their opponents found water off the tee before the Brampton duo ended up in the thick rough after chipping beyond the green.
