Emily was fifth in last week’s English women’s amateur championship and is a past winner of the Scottish U16 open stroke play title.  

Brogan Townend, 18, (Pleasington) is the reigning Faldo Series girls’ champion and has previously won the U16 title. She is a past winner of the prestigious scratch events, The Leveret and the Pleasington Putter. She and Emily were both members of England’s successful team at last year’s girls’ Home Internationals.
