Three of England's Curtis Cup players, Bronte Law, Alice Hewson and Meghan MacLaren won the international team competition at the British women’s amateur championship.

Law (Bramhall), Hewson (Berkhamsted) and MacLaren (Wellingborough) beat Ireland by four shots to win the SLGA Cup at Dundonald Links, Ayrshire.

The team event is run in conjunction with the stroke play qualifying rounds of the championship. Counting only their best two scores each round, the English trio totalled 151 on Day 1 and 144 on Day 2 for an aggregate of 295.

Ireland's representatives this week were Leona Maguire (Slieve Russell), Olivia Mehaffey (Royal Co Down Ladies) and Chloe Ryan (Castletroy). Germany (Esther Henseleit, Leona Harm and Lena Schaffner) finished third with a total of 300.
