Abby Roper, Cumbria County Girls' Junior Champion from Seascale GC played in the Girls' Champion of Champions at Frilford GC at the weekend and came in a very impressive third. The competition is over 36 holes and Abby had two great rounds of 74 and 73.

Many Congratulations to Abby - well played!!

Unfortunately, County Champion Harriet Barker from Carus Green GC twisted her ankle and had to retire from the Ladies Champion of Champions competition. Huge disappointment for her. I am sure you will have another chance to play in it, Harriet.

Caitlin Whitehead from Carus Green is in Canada representing England in the WORLD Junior Championships. What a year you are having Caitlin, Globe Trotter!!

We wish you and the team all the very best.

The girls are certainly flying the flag for Cumbria!
