A local course provided the stage for an annual friendly clash between the second team and veteran’s sides of Cambs & Hunts Ladies County Golf Association last week – and local players featured in both teams.

The veteran’s team – featuring Mo Poole of Brampton Park and home player Sharren Kjensted – won all three matches in the event at Ramsey Golf Club.

Poole teamed up with captain Grace Eastment for 3 & 1 success against Morgan Tritton (Gog Magog) and Chloe Ashman (Ely City).

Kjensted put her course knowledge to good effect when joining forces with Tina Broadley (Ely City) for a 2 & 1 success in the second match against Cindy McIntyre (Bourn) and Anna Guest (Gog Magog).

But there was defeat for the second team Ramsey duo of Lucy Mills-Cripps and Liz Alderson, who were powerless to prevent the veterans from completing a whitewash when going down 2 & 1 to Lesley Gichrist (Gog Magog) and Jude Hole (The Links).

Brampton Park quartet Sally Acton, Anne Gibbs, Sally Palmer and Shirley Osborne were runners-up in the recent County AM-AM with an 88-point tally.

A combined St Ives and The Cambridgeshire team of Nicky Hastings, Nicky Cope, Lynn King and Debbie Tiplady took third sport on countback with 86 points.
