RAMSEY Ladies narrowly lost out 2-1 to Girton Ladies in the final of the Grace Norman Trophy.

They had battled bravely through to the final at Lakeside Lodge, only clinching the semi-final win after Nancy Smith and Rosie Hall won the deciding match on the last hole.

Girton's Fiona McGlashen and Margaret McCall were down in their match against Ramsey's Pat Parnell and Mary Fielding but fought back and took the lead on the 17th hole. They then won the 18th to finish two up to level the match.
