Nations Cup double for England

Annabel Dimmock

England internationals Annabel Dimmock, Gabriella Cowley and Alex Peters, completed a team double at the weekend with victory in the Nations Cup at the Welsh women’s open stroke play championship.

They won the trophy by five shots over Scotland. The event was decided by the best two scores in each of the three rounds of the championship.

The previous weekend Annabel and Gabriella won the Nations Cup for England at the Helen Holm Scottish open stroke play at Troon.

Annabel (Wentworth, image © Leaderboard Photography) also came within a whisker of completing a remarkable personal double. After winning the Helen Holm, she challenged strongly for the Welsh title, eventually finishing on eight-under par and runner-up, by a shot, to Scotland’s Eilidh Briggs.

English players were on impressive form throughout the championship, with six in the top ten. Following Annabel were Gemma Clews (Delamere Forest) and Emma Goddard (Royal Liverpool), who tied third on seven-under; Bethan Popel (Long Ashton) seventh on six-under; Gabriella Cowley (Hanbury Manor) eighth on five-under; and Meghan MacLaren (Wellingborough) who was among those tied ninth on four-under.
