Yorkshire and Gloucestershire continue their charge

Yorkshire and Gloucestershire continued their charge at the English Women’s County Finals with strong foursomes performances in their fourth day matches at Waterlooville in Hampshire.

Yorkshire currently top the championship table with 6pt after three days of County Finals, while Gloucestershire have 5pt. If both win today their match tomorrow will be the championship decider.

Gloucestershire, the South West champions head into this afternoon’s singles with a 3-0 advantage in the match against Staffordshire.

Bethan Popel and Alex Saunders continued their unbeaten form, winning their match 4/2. Alex Giles and Claudia Ovens added a 5/4 win while Ebonie Lewis and Charlie Hiatt finished 4/3.

Yorkshire lead Norfolk 2-1, with Alison Knowles and Olivia Winning maintaining their 100 per cent record in this week’s foursomes with a 4/3 win. Megan Clarke and Hannah Holden (image © Leaderboard Photography) added the second point on the 17th.

But the Norfolk mother-and-daughter pairing of Tracey and Amelia Williamson won the final game. Amelia holed a 45ft birdie putt on 17 to give them a 1 hole lead playing the last, which was halved.

Buckinghamshire, who are seeking their first win of the week, lead Surrey 2-1 after their foursomes. Megan Dennis and Thalia Kirby got the first point on the board with their 4/2 win, followed by Denise Goodacre and Daisy Kennedy, who won 2/1.
