Clitheroe golfer Sophie Lamb has been named as a reserve for England ladies for next week’s women’s Home Internationals.

Cheshire’s Rachael Goodall and Surrey’s Annabel Dimmock will represent England ladies for the first time when they join the eight-strong team, with 15-year-old Sophie on standby.

Goodall and Dimmock will play alongside Sarah-Jane Boyd, Gabriella Cowley, Georgia Hall, Alex Peters, Amber Ratcliffe and Lauren Taylor, who are all established women’s internationals.

Sophie is joined as a reserve by Sophie Keech (Parkstone) and Alice Hewson (Berkhamsted).

The team will be captained by Lynn Booth, and the coach is Steve Robinson.

The championship takes place at Scotscraig Golf Club, Scotland, from Wednesday to Friday next week.

England are the defending champions and aiming for their third win in a row – and their 21st since the competition began in 1982.

Sophie last month helped England become Girls’ Home International champions.
